Renewal

Periwinkle

Whatever the weather, and whatever date it falls on, Easter has always seemed to me to be the official beginning of spring. I imagine pagan rituals that predate our Judeo-Christian era, where the great goddess welcomes the sun god and allows him to warm her winter-chilled flesh. The fields are tilled, the crust of earth turned over to reveal the soft, dark underneath which will embrace and nurture spring’s new seed. And there is rejoicing in the knowledge that another winter has passed, and we’ve survived. I don’t know anything about farming or crops, and I don’t know much about pagan rituals, but I do know something about renewal. And today, that’s what I celebrate. The end of a cold winter. The warmth of new sun. A world filled with possibilities.

STYLE

I was aiming for periwinkle for Luna’s color challenge, but might have crossed that very, very fine line between blue and lavender. Still, I find it such a perfect Easter look that I can’t bear to change!

    Very pretty. The lacey skirt is such a nice compliment to the flowy shirt 🙂
