we decided to walk by the lake, yes it's in walking distance from home, on a crisp, sunny saturday afternoon. the first day of the year that felt very spring-like. the walk was full of many puddles from the snow melting but it was very peaceful & beautiful and i made a friend along the way (cute puppy in photo). he walked up to us and stood near me to be petted. i fell in love. i fall in love easily. actually i dont. then we saw a kite in the sky. wishing i had one to fly. it was a lovely day.
