Is it possible to feel the season changes in your body?

Or is it… if you wish for something so bad and so hard….you can actually feel, see and smell it?

I don’t know what it is but I feel the spring in my body….I say this because we don’t have spring, summer, winter or fall in Suriname, we have the long rainy season and the short rainy season.

But after living in Holland for over 20 years it’s like the season changes are happening inside of me now we live in Suriname, with all this I mean the feelings that come along with the seasons, take spring, the sunshine, flowers, Easter, birds (and more) all of these things want me to go out for long walks, wearing bright colors and making plans for the summer!

Well I still feel that way around this time of the year! I’m spending more time gardening (long walks…phoe… way to hot right now!), sewing with bright colors (mostly for kids and baby’s) and planning a trip to Curacao in September (summer!? break in Suriname, …yes where late!)

Spring is in the Air (Body)!!!

Some of the thing I made the last couple of weeks! Feeling springy~

My mother inlaw sold the dresses and shoes in the first and forth pic. The dress in the 4th  pic. Is revaiseble one side is purple with little flowers and the other side is yellow with small inbroudered flowers (see pic 2) it also come with a summer had from burda ../.. that is also revaiseble but I forgot to take a pic.
