Happy Friday!! I hope everyone has a fabulous start into the weekend! May it be filled with joy, love and excitement! I am really looking forward to taking a break from writing on my Bachelor's Thesis and enjoying some sun (yes, the forecast actually looks good!) with my hubby.

This week I brought home some Spring Snowflakes, that my mom and I picked up from the park last night. We went on another mother-daughter date and hit up the local TK Maxx. Don't ask me why, but it's TK instead of TJ over here.. Maybe it's so it doesn't sound so weird if you say it in German - TK sounds not much different in German or English, but J is pronounced like "yott" which doesn't roll off the tongue that well..

A few facts about the Spring Snowflake:
  • Snowflake flowers are native to southern Europe.
  • The Greek word is Leucojum, which means "white violet" - their sweet scent does remind of violets a lot.
  • All parts of this flower are poisonous if ingested.
  • Spring Snowflakes will return every year.
