Return to Easter

We're back from Spring break and it's all systems go around here. Funny, I was worried about sending our oldest back to school today. Like maybe it would be too much after a busy and tiring 10 days in the sun. She adjusted just fine. I, on the other hand, need another break. 

It's amazing just how quickly the post-vacation blues can set in. The travel is difficult, you come home and the house is a mess, Easter is just around the corner, etc. You know what I mean. 

Well, whenever I feel like I am starting to get just a bit overwhelmed, I take a step back and try to appreciate all that I have. And then, of course, try to make it just a bit better.

I decided to inject a touch of Spring in the entryway, just in time for Easter. Taking a moment to update our entry display was just the pick-me-up I needed. 

Working with what I had on hand, I lined the base of the cage with preserved moss, added in one of my homemade green moss decor balls, a nest and colored Easter eggs. The final touch is a small vase filled with blooming daffodils.

It's hard to get a good shot of just how cute this little vignette is. But it's cute, trust me. I'm not biased.

And when Easter has passed, I might just remove the colored eggs and add in something a bit more natural. We'll see. 

What's your secret for a fast pick-me-up?
