there's always something to remind me...

I spent some time today out in the back yard with Matilda, when a slight breeze came up and I smelled happiness. Then and I noticed the huge bushes of lilacs hanging over the back fence.

In the very first house I grew up in, we had lilac bushes that seemed much larger than these ones in our yard that I would play under all summer. They still remind me of those carefree days, when nothing mattered other then being outside, playing, imagining, and really enjoying life.

I picked some and I put them in our kitchen- I love how a little bunch of flowers in my kitchen makes me smile, and brightens my day.
