Spring has Sprung!

I'm so excited! The lilac bushes I planted when we moved in last summer, too late for them to bloom, have survived the winter! Not only that, but they already have green buds on them hinting at the lovely, fragrant lilacs I will get to enjoy this spring!

Also, these I did not plant, but I guess because we missed seeing what was already at the house popping up in the spring we didn't know that these were around our path:

Here's hoping I have simliar luck with the vegetable garden I have big plans for...

Anyone Out There??

Well, I'm not sure if I still have any followers out there in the blog world since it's been such a long time since I last posted, but seeing as how we start another deployment in a week, I figured it was time to get back in business. How else will I share with the world (or the 2 people that may read this blog) all the wonderful care packages I will once again be shipping overseas. Oh yeah, and I guess I'll keep you posted on how I'm doing on the home-front and how my betrothed is doing overseas.

I'm struggling a bit with how to make these care packages dinstinct from last time; I fear I may have used up all my creative juices then! Besides, they can't just be different, they have to to BETTER! :-) I will be sure to send Marcus's address to anyone who may want it once I have it. The more people sending him pieces of home, the better!

Oh, and for anyone out there wondering: I am doing as well as can be expected...just ready to start baking some cookies!!! :-)
