Sappy goes "Spring."

It's silly, and it's probably because I'm still in "sappy mom mode" as Hummie puts it, after my daughter's birthday, but I'm feeling rather attached to my latest creation. The color palette was chosen on an early morning drive home from the airport a couple of weeks ago. I had just dropped David off for another (!) business trip, and so the trip home was a little reminiscent of the days when he lived 220 miles away from me and we dated long distance. I can remember climbing in the car back then to drive home and crying for about the first 15 miles...

but I digress (and maudlin-ly at that, yikes!). Anyway, I was feeling contemplative, and the road from the airport to my house skirts the eastern edge of the city so you drive through the prairie, and it was quite lovely, with the blues and the golds and the touches of green...

So here is the first installment of "Colorado Spring." Hope you can use it to scrap memories as fond as those that inspired it:

(I must also say, it suddenly occurred to me today when I uploaded this segment that maybe somebody left me comments on the last things - Awww, I felt loved! Thanks! You made my day!)
