The Japanese Gardens

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Spring was here this weekend (and I am just going to ignore the snow in the forecast for Wednesday…) and I spent most of my time outdoors. It felt great to be out in the sunshine, wearing a light shirt and enjoying every last bit of it all.

Lately I have been finding myself getting up super early on Saturday mornings and getting a jump start on all my housework. I am up really early for work each day and while I like to catch a couple extra hours of sleep on the weekends, I have been finding that I enjoy having everything in the house cleaned by 8-9am and I can then enjoy the rest of my day/weekend. Plus, I enjoy cleaning by myself before everyone else gets up and I can just zoom through it all and not have anyone else in the way. It’s a win-win for me!

Michael and I went for a drive into Downtown Buffalo to the Japanese Gardens to see the cherry blossoms. Let me tell you, I didn’t think there would be that many people there (especially on a Sunday morning!). It was actually overwhelming and my introvert nature just wanted to find my place and take some pictures and have everyone leave me alone. It took awhile but I did manage to find a spot as Michael patiently waited for me to do my thing.

I have a goal this year to spend more time outdoors and enjoying the city and what it has to offer. I have a listing of 6 beautiful gardens in Buffalo to visit this Spring/Summer and this was the first one checked off my list. It was beautiful but definitely a small area and lots of people. (and my dislike of all the people isn’t even because of Covid… it’s simply either I was in someone’s way or they were in mine.)

I was fairly pleased with the pictures that I took though! The sun was very harsh and it shows in the pictures but I think they still turned out pretty. Cherry blossoms have always been a favorite of mine to photograph.

There’s so much more that I could add about this weekend (it truly was a great one with lost of things going on) but I will have to save them for another post. I hope everyone enjoys their week!

XOXO, Jules

This fall we have plans to drive out to my old college town and take in the beautiful fall colors of Central New York.

Recently I have been trying new ways of creating - Needle Felting and Hand Embroidery are quickly becoming favorites!

We are currently fostering a friend's dog for 3 months. So now we have 3 big dogs in our house. Some call us crazy, I say bring on all the tail-wags and kisses.
