This is Ellie's first spring.
Everything is so fresh and new to her. She's a very curious little explorer.
Her wonder has opened my eyes a little more.
She stares at the movements of a worm, so I try not to dislike them so much.
She touches her little paws to the bark of a tree and I see its texture again.
She tilts her head at a squirrel and I wish I knew more about animal communication.
And when she sticks her nose inside the tiniest yellow flower, I melt.
How did I go so long without a puppy, without Ellie? ♥
