My New Stoop Picture

Hello to everyone today.  I feel so joyous as our snow here in MN is finally melting. I am so over the snow. We Minnesotan's get so excited when there is a glimmer of spring time.  I just went out to my front yard and took a picture of my stoop since my old picture is snow snow snow. Let me remind you that my blog is called "Stoopin It in the Suburbs."  In the spring time, we sit on our stoop and literally can sit for hours connecting with friends and neighbors.  I can see why women stooped it in the olden days.  It keeps you connected to what's real and what's important.  Connection, women, laughter, love, pain, joy, family, God and on it goes.

I hope your not too disappointed in the picture of my stoop.  I know that it looks very drab here in Minnesota in April.  I guess you could say we all feel so grateful when any forward leap into spring comes our way. I will make sure to update the stoop as often as the changes occur.  It is so beautiful in Mn come May.  I know that may be hard to believe but it is true.

"It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"  ~Mark Twain

Why don't you start stoopin it in your neighborhood?


  1. Hi Laura, thank you for following me on twitter, thought I'd stop by and visit your blog. I remember how it felt when the snow finally melted when I used to live in Maine. Words often can't truly describe how wonderful it is to see the ground again..hope may spring eternal, but it really kicks into high gear when the snow melts.. :)

  2. Dawn,
    We have had almost one week of warm seventy weather. It has been so great. Then, lastnight it started to snow. I woke to snow covered grass, thank God it is gone now.
