We went to Nantucket last week. What a beautiful island. It is one of our favorite places.

Here we are after having our traditional lobster lunch - yum! (And, yes, we did take the dog!)

Here are some of the scenes from around town:

Everyone was busy getting ready for the Daffodil Festival.

The flower boxes were gorgeous!

I love the old, brick historical buildings.

A sailor's valentine...

Want to sit for a while?

Love the nautical motifs.

I adore it there... we had such a great time. More photos to come...

Easter Prayer

...written by my son, age 13

God, your Son rose from your Kingdom of Heaven to earth, in order to retake his mortal form and walk among us. From the tomb, with holes from the nails of his crucifixion still fresh, he returned to us in order to preach your word to us, heal the wounded, and forgive the sinful. He did this by your command, as we shall remember on this ever-date-changing holiday. Holy spirit to whom we pray, Amen.

Spring has arrived!

Spring poked her head out on Sunday and it was delightful - warm and sunny... it felt great!

Look at this beautiful home... I love how the blue flowers create a carpet of blue in front of the house.

Today it doesn't feel like Spring in Connecticut, but things are just waiting for those first warm days to spring into bloom.
