#3 Spring.

There are a lot of things that I love about our house – one of them being springtime in our backyard.  This has been an incredibly long winter, it’s been cold and rainy for far too long, and some days it feels like spring will never arrive.  But then I look out our back window, and between our two oak trees, the previous homeowners planted a hosta garden, and when they all start to bloom I start to feel hope again that spring is right around the corner.  Within the past few weeks, the lilies of the valley, the lenten roses, and the hostas have all started making their appearances again.
