Simple Things - Sunbeams

After a week of going a little stir-crazy in the house and awaiting baby's (overdue) arrival, seeing sunshine and blue skies on Friday was wonderful.

There's just something about feeling spring in the air that brings a smile to your face. You can't help but want to be out in it, soaking up the light, breathing in the fresh air, listening to the drip of melting snow. The ground might be a mix of mud and slush and crusty snow, yet you know just beneath it, new life is waiting to burst through.

I ventured out for a short stroll (not straying too far from the house in either direction, just in case the wee one decided it would be a good time to be a new life bursting through) and couldn't resist capturing the beautiful sunbeams.
