Signs of spring — Washington DC

Long walk and good talk that warmed the heart. Happily observed many signs of spring, even though there was a chill in the air {hence, a black-and-white version seemed fair!} Quiet Friday evening celebrating progress - wishing for easier recoveries.

All in all, cherishing being home and *appreciating* all of the happy moments of this week. Grateful for positive attitudes and lots of love.
