Happy Spring!

Yay! Today is the first day of Spring and I am so glad it is here! This winter has been unusually cold and snowy for Nashville so I am really looking forward to some sunny days and nice weather! In honor of the first day of Spring my hyacinths decided to bloom today!

I love coming home each day and seeing what new flowers are starting to peak through the ground. So far these are my only ones that have bloomed but I have lots of tulips, buttercups, a hydrangea, and some more hyacinths that are emerging! YAY! Hopefully this year I can become a better gardener....and I am going to give herb growing another try! I hope everyone enjoyed this beautiful first day of Spring!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Our cell has a tradition of having a St. Patrick's Day party and this year was no exception! We all dress in green and eat either traditional Irish food or green food. This year was lots of fun, and we were all so excited that the Tanner's were back in town for the party! It was great to have fun, food, and fellowship with everyone! The kids were WILD--it must have been all of the sugar! Here are some pics from the night...

The girls and Virgil--he is the ultimate Irishman! :)

Virgil....ahh, there are no words to describe him! :)

It was a great time and I can't wait until next years St. Patty's Day party!! :)
