We don’t know about where you are, but in our neck of the woods, spring has definitely sprung! Well, we’re sure there will be a few more freezing days sprinkled in just so that the weather can still show us who’s boss… But, all in all, it is warm, warm, warm!

The daffodils are blooming all around the mailbox (They always make us think of that Wordsworth poem, I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.) and the birds are chirping and it’s overall just lovely.

The boys and I are headed to Florida tomorrow for fun Dear Carolina signings at Copperfish Books in Punta Gorda, MacIntosh Books in Sanibel and then the Southwest Florida Book Festival in Fort Myers. (I can’t believe that I get to meet Debbie Macomber, Meg Cabot, Jodi Thomas and lots of other amazing authors there!) It is going to be so much fun! If you’re in that area, please stop by and say hi.

All of this gorgeous weather has us dreaming of tons of outdoor time.

And what’s our favorite outdoor staple? A garden seat, of course! Isn’t this gold amazing?

But the best part about these fabulous accessories? They are perfect for indoor use as well! Have you ever seen anything as cute as these natural fiber garden stools? We are obsessed!

Garden stools in the bathroom are so perfect. They are just great for stacking fresh towels and washcloths. Aren’t these black and white stripes fabulous? It’s a great touch of whimsy.

And, while garden stools are great inside, we sure do love them in their natural habitat.

We hope you have a moment to get out in the fresh spring air today!
