Did you send out Easter letters this year?

Walking into our bedroom last night and finding a lovely, carefully cut out and yet slightly crooked snowdrop letter – complete with a snowdrop picked from the garden – on my pillow was the nicest surprise. True to tradition, I now had to try to guess who “sent” me the letter…

Since I couldn’t guess the name in three tries, I now owe my youngest son an Easter egg.

Snowdrop letters is one of the Danish traditions that we at JDL feel that everyone should remember and uphold. And it’s a tradition that isn’t just for kids…

Now that Easter is fast approaching, it’s high time to get started if you have yet to bring out your scissors. Send snowdrop letters to family, neighbors and friends – with a sweet little poem and a fresh or pressed snowdrop. They’re sure to bring about a lot of fun and joy!

Happy Easter everyone. /Vivian

Cozy Courtyard

”Wow, mom, it looks like a cozy restaurant,” my daughter exclaimed after we set out the patio furniture in the courtyard here at JDL over the weekend.

We set up three seats so now we can enjoy our lunch and breaks in the sunshine outside. We even had a few pots with spring plants left over from some articles that we shot last week to help create that spring feeling.

We got rid of the dry leaves and raked the gravel – so now we’re ready for spring! /Vivian
