This afternoon I looked at the wireless thermometer and it displayed 80 degrees. I didn't think this could possibly be accurate (the sensor sits in the sun), so I took a peek at an outdoor thermometer that we have mounted on the porch. It is currently shaded by the wrap-around porch...it registered between 80 and 85 degrees. What?!!! So I immediately turned on the Weather Channel which reported that Lawrence, KS (our closest neighboring town) was reporting 81 degrees. Aaaah....spring!
I purchased this sweet wreath at The Flower Petaler while shopping with my mom in St. Charles, Missouri. My mom and I love to shop the antique shops and craft stores in this lovely historic town along the Missouri River. St. Charles is the original capitol of Missouri and is home to wonderful restaurants, wineries, gift shops, museums, etc. Walking along its cobblestone Main street with historic homes intermingled among shop owners is like taking a step back in time!

The kids and I are heading to St. Louis this weekend to celebrate my nephew's first birthday! I'm hoping that my mom and I can get in a quick shopping trip to St. Charles between all the festivities. After a long winter, I'm in need of some outdoor retail therapy!
