This is our walk home from school. Suddenly, just in the past week, there are buds in the trees and the very first cherry blossoms are starting to appear. Claudine likes to spot them on every tree and bush along the way. I think we can all agree that it’s been a really long winter, so I feel like we’re all clinging onto these little signs that better days are ahead. It was also a really long day today, sort of emotionally taxing with a lot of news to take in. But I ended the day with some friends and in the end that always makes things better.

    Isn’t it weird how we can never remember winter being this long last year? I go through the same thought process every February/April/May. I’m glad Claudine has got into the habit of searching for blossom early…x

    I was excited to notice the cherry blossoms this week too. Sorry to hear that you had an emotionally taxing day, but I agree days that end with friends make the hard times much better!

    How lovely to see such delicate blossoms in such a big, lively city 🙂

    Hope everything is going ok with you, emotionally taxing days are far more tiring than the most physically demanding days I always think.
