How Tweet It Is

February 22, 2010


We went outside to play in the snow today, my lovely daughter and I. We built our first snow family, complete with eyelashes on the snow mommy from a rose seed pod that somehow managed to stay on the bush during this winter weather.

It was really nice to get outside and get some fresh air into our winterized, indoor bodies. But let’s face it, it’s not spring yet. Not even close. Both groundhog and crocus know that we still have a bunch of chilly weather in our future. I think I’ve only seen a dozen birds since November (other than those hearty seagulls that love to coast on chilly winter winds). Everything is hiding until the sunny seasons. They’re on their way, right? Right?

Everything is hiding…that is except for in my daughter’s bedroom. Within these four pink walls, there are birds, bugs, frogs and flowers. It’s 365 days of flora and fauna, no matter the weather. Stuffed, on stickers, gracing posters…the entire animal kingdom awaits in her room.

The perfect addition to her season-less shelter is Shirin’s sweet little black bird, perched sweetly on a fresh cotton sprig on a super-soft ribbed tank. Now this shirt is a dainty reminder that spring is eventually around the corner. The adorably fashionable shoulder ruffle adds just the right amount of girly girl for fancy days, while the 100% ringspun cotton form means she will wear it constantly.

That is, constantly when the temperature gets above freezing. Because I have to tell you, this weather…it’s for the birds.
