A relaxing Friday evening

    Ahhhh, my favorite Six Senses day!! My senses are all over the place from this fabulous spring weekend, but this morning itself I’m home enjoying my Sunday morning rituals of quiet time, reading blogs and drinking my coffee.

    Seeing – the doggy mess in my backyard from a full winter (YUCK) but
    Knowing – it means Spring is here which makes me
    Feel – especially happy & excited for the new seasons & great things to come!! But also feeling icky knowing I have to clean up that mess!! LOL

    Hearing – the birds & frogs outside because my windows are open!
    Smelling – got nothing, spring allergies are in full effect. :’-(
    Tasting – my cup of Kahlua coffee with Baileys! One of my favorite sunday morning rituals.
