If you are curious about how any of these perform, let me know which ones in the comments.

The garden is producing. Cucumbers hang from the vines, baby watermelons the size of small oranges look like striped green beads on a necklace, corn silk is emerging and the snails and beetles and caterpillars feast. I am feasting too, on the Whole30 again. I reset on April 15th and I am feeling pretty good. I do have the occasional sugar craving but heading them off with a cups of tea helps. 

My wildflower garden is bursting with tiny cheerful blossoms. The snails and caterpillars like it in there too. But I don't mind. Maybe the girls and I will get to see some newly hatched butterflies and moths soon. 

We have been testing the past couple weeks and will continue to at school. It can be mind numbing but I have spent some of the time thinking about what I want to do with the girls this summer, making financial goals, health goals and summer goals. A little reflection has been nice.

After mapping out the summer I have realized it won't be as carefree and lazy as summers past. 

But that will just make the time I get to spend unwinding that much sweeter. 

How is your spring coming along? What scents are you craving? I am in the mood for lavender, violets and sweet things right now.
