Happy birthday to Adam, and wishing Sarah every success as she contemplates letting go of something which no longer seems to fit her life - here's to new doors opening when she is ready :). Oh, boys and bikes (and adoring granddads) - isn't that a super photo? I admire your ability to read books as long as that - I find just holding them up hard!
Wow, these views must have been even more beautiful in real life ... and I never mind going back the way I came because, as you say, you see things you didn't see on the way there :).
How glorious - it looks so peaceful ...
What a stunning place - and your photos really show the expanse of blue everywhere. How wonderful to have such a good day for it ..
Such a beautiful expression! And a very lovely young man ... you've captured something really special here, and I am sure in years to come he will be so delighted you did.

It does indeed remind me of parts of Edinburgh - and the Botanic Gardens look very beautiful indeed. That's a lovely photo of you both, and you look great despite the pain of the back injury - a trooper!

This isn't so much a card - more a work of art :).

Oh my goodness, Honoré - snow again? I feel for you - this is usually our weather up here but it has been the easiest winter I can remember. Your collage and words put a spring in my step! Isn't it lovely to be feel the sun warming up :). Thank-you so much very much for linking up again this month, and I have been hoping all is well with you ...
All lovely, but my heart goes to the top one - I love the overlapping stamping, and the fact that it's all one layer. Good to learn about the Clean and Simple site and classes too!
Ahhh, such a happy Spring-y page! I like the layering of your little flowers - very delicate.

My goodness, that's a lot of delicate and painstaking work, Suzanna - but really worth it for the result!

Superb fireworks photos - I never manage to capture anything as good as this. And so interesting to get a glimpse of your wonderful trip.
So very pretty, with a real zing of energy - your interpretation is perfect. I like the oblique angle too.

That's an amazing name for a winery - no delusions of grandeur there, then! Your photos are beautifully sharp and the repetition of the barrels visually very nice. I'd have enjoyed it all apart from the cold!

Wishing Tracy a belated but very Happy Birthday! Gorgeous stuff - I love the 'Hello'. I have no idea what gelatos are (apart from an ice cream!) so I am clearly going to have to google.

Your page is so fresh - I love that use of white space. And so taken aback by the snow and ice, of which we've had virtually none this year (it was 59F today). I like your notebook too - I couldn't live without mine this year.
My goodness, that sounds eventful! I'm a little upset they weren't more concerned about damage to their passengers. Looking forward to more eventful instalments and welcome back :).

That's a really hot combination! Hoping the weather follows suit very soon ...

Oh, just seriously sweet - I'd be framing it for my baby's room :).

You are indeed well-set! I love the stunning simplicity and elegance of that top one especially. I am sure these will be received with delight :).

Now there's a perceptive man, Balzac! I often used to watch my Mum, and it's quite true I could tell when she was content, and when she was irritated ... It has been wonderful to drop into your quiet domestic space, Honoré, and so glad that your arm and hand have healed sufficiently for you to be stitching again - I love that photo :). And am intrigued by your If/Only support! I am always so touched when you join in, and thank-you ...
This is the most stylish heart I have seen anywhere, Honoré: lovely! I like to think of you all cozied up with crafts, cashews and a clutch of TV programmes :). Hoping that if you venture out, all will be well; I bought special metal gripper things for the bottom of my shoes or boots this winter and we've barely had any snow or ice at all. Yay for Norman, keeping you supplied with nice things!

Holes in buildings always send a shudder down my spine ... Nicely captured.
