Blossom Kingdom

Possum Kingdom by Toadies on Grooveshark

♪I can promise you
You'll stay as beautiful
With dark hair
And soft skin...forever♪

Isn't it amazing how a totally random song can remind you of a certain time or place? I remember going through Luke's music when we were first dating and playing this..he starting singing it to me and I've been in love ever since haha I'm pretty sure I even had the same super short haircut!

I've been feeling kind of blah lately so I decided to put on some of my favorite springtime pretties and spend some time with Luke at Pleasant Ridge. Perfect weather and sunsety goodness makes me a happy girl! We had already missed most of the flowering trees, I swear some of them blossom and die within a week..wish they would stick around all spring!

I've been patiently waiting for the two apple blossom trees in the front of our house to bloom and they finally did this week. I couldn't help but bring a few sprigs inside, they were just too pretty to resist! I've been working on this big arse house of ours a lot lately and it's been taking up most of my time, it's seems like the projects are never ending. Be careful what you wish for..why did my dream house have to be giant and over 160 years old?! haha 
can you spy copper in the doorway?

Picked this vintage magazine up the same day, April 1941 and blossoms..couldn't be more perfect!

Have a lovely weekend!
