Spring is just around the corner at A Primitive Place
 During the long winters of North Dakota, I find myself eagerly anticipating the arrival of spring. I long to once again see the sunshine and to feel it on my face. As I was preparing this issue, I was thinking about the arrival of spring and finally being able to see and feel the sunshine again. As I was thinking about the sun, I realized just how important it is. I realized that the sun truly does make us happier. It makes us feel better and puts us in a much better mood. I then decided that we can feel all of those emotions throughout the year when we allow the bright light of the sun to shine from within ourselves. When we smile and laugh, we are happier people, and when we help our neighbor, it makes us feel better and improves our mood. It is up to each of us to spread the bright light of the sun throughout the lives of the people with whom we come into contact.

    In this issue, you will visit five beautiful primitive/colonial homes that have been kissed by the sunshine of spring. You will also get to tour two porches and patios and a backyard shed full of primitive eye candy. As you tour each one, you will feel better and you will find yourself smiling a little brighter.

    My sincere hope is that all of you are able to feel the benefits of the sun this spring and that you are able to spread those benefits to the people in your life. When we all collectively agree to spread warmth and light, the world really does become a better place. All of us at A Primitive Place magazine wish all of you a spring filled with all the things that make you happy. 

All my best,

Kristine Walden
