Felicity goes a'walkin!

 It was a warm late spring day. Felicity had finished her chores and Momma gave her permission to walk to the Cole's house to see Elizabeth. Felicity ditched her sun bonnet when Momma wasn't looking. Freckles didn't concern her very much anyway and the bonnet just got in the way of having fun. She thought she'd take her time on the walk to the Cole's. She was walking down the path and spotted some pretty purple flowers. "These would be wonderful to take back to Momma," she thought.

Soon, Felicity decided to walk to her favorite climbing tree. She loved sitting in this tree and watching the townspeople go by. Climbing the tree was very un-ladylike, Momma would be angry with her if she knew about it. Felicity was supposed to be acting like a gentlewoman and a gentlewoman certainly didn't climb trees.

 "Ahhhhhh, I love this warmer weather and I just can't wait until summer... I love going to Grandfather's plantation and spending time with him!"
"Well, I best be on my way to the Cole's.. I have lots of things to tell Elizabeth!"

Happy Easter!

Today was a great day! When I got home from church, I found that the Easter Bunny came and left me a basket! It was full of fun goodies. The weather is absolutely beautiful and we are planning an egg hunt with my cousin Isabelle and some friends this evening. How has your day been?
Happy Easter!

Spring has Sprung!

Well, right now it is 85 degrees outside! All the flowers, trees and my allergies are in full bloom down here in Mississippi. Yesterday, I tried on my Easter Dress and since the flowers in my backyard are so pretty, mom took my picture in front of them. I think the two tone yellow flowers compliment my headband and dress. Has spring sprung where you live?
