Signs of Spring have sprung in The Golden State. A bit early as we seem to have skipped Winter with the exception of a few cold nights here and there. I'm a Spring baby so it has a special place in my heart. Spring brings warmer weather, blossoms, new beginnings... what's not to love?

A couple of days a week I let myself into my parents house to feed their (canine) girls.  If you've followed me on Instagram for a while, you're aware that my dads garden is something I photograph often. The man has the greenest of thumbs. He often calls me when he plants something new or when something he planted years ago starts sprouting. He knows I'm going to want to smell it and photograph the living ish out of it! But back to the point, two weeks ago as I was taking the pups out, I see his peach tree bursting in pink blossoms! I took a couple of pictures with my phone  and went back later that day with my camera. These are the pictures from that day. A couple of days after his apricot tree was covered in white blooms. I didn't take my camera for that but you can see it here, here and here.

Such beauties, right? They truly make me want to attend a Hanami Festival in Tokyo. Where people picnic underneath Sakura.
These babies will do for now.

And yes, of course, I've made a wallpaper.

I've been sitting on these for over a week.
I wanted to find a quote to go with it because of what Spring symbolizes. Until this morning I had moved on from that idea. As I was resizing images, I distracted myself to read the latest post from Chelsea from Truelane.Co.  In it she shared some wise words she received which helped her make a bold decision. Obviously, this is applied differently in all our lives. We're not all dealing with a big move, like her. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, whatever you want to do, whatever you're trying to do it's good to remember:
