I can feel it coming…

I can smell it in the air… spring must be right around the corner! After an inexplicably cold winter (don’t laugh, my northern friends!!), the cherry blossoms are blooming, doves are making nests, and I am SO excited.

These little guys are nesting outside our office window. Of course you’ll notice that the photo is so much better than my usual photos since it was taken by Pat Stuckart (our IT guy at my office) with his amazing talent (and amazing camera)!

Colin is so excited about playing golf with Chad again! They haven’t been out on the course together in a while. I have a feeling that they’ll be out there this week, now that the weather is so nice. It’s hard to keep a six-year old engaged for a round of golf but Colin really enjoys the fresh air and time with Dad.

Spring “things” are happening all around. The Charleston Food and Wine Festival was last weekend and all around Daniel Island there is evidence that the Family Circle Cup is close at hand. I don’t know a whole lot about tennis but I love the excitement that the tournament brings to our neighborhood each year.

Yesterday I got to have lunch here on DI with a dear friend at Laura Albert’s Tasteful Options. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. It was a welcome break during a busy day!

And, of course Miles got to enjoy the nice weather too!! Spring, I’m so thankful that you’re here 🙂

How to make a little boy’s day…

So a couple of days ago, I posted about Colin’s fixation with the Port of Charleston. Two days later, I got a tweet from the CRBJ that the largest cargo ship to ever enter Charleston had come (and gone) that afternoon. We missed it!!!! There were a few photos in the paper but Colin was really, really disappointed that we didn’t see it.

Well, the very next morning, I received an email from Pat Stuckart (the IT guy in my office). I’ve posted several of Pat’s photos on my blog before. Believe it or not, he had gone out and taken photos of the MSC Rita while it was at the Wando Terminal. Colin was SO excited!! Again, it was sweet to see how God does little things for us to show His love 🙂

Here is the MSC Rita in all her glory. If anyone knows when she will next be in port, PLEASE let me know!

Thanks to Pat Stuckart for making my son’s day. If you’d like to see more of Pat’s photography, you can click on his name
