Delightfully Seeking Me

The Vernal Equinox, or the very first day of Spring, is tomorrow and I know that I am more than ready to bid adieu to Winter and I have been longing for a fresh start and new season of growth. I cannot wait to see the vernal lushness of the landscape as the trees and… Continue reading Word Nerd : Vernal
