I'm not anxious for spring yet - truly. This year more than any other in the past I am surviving winter quite handily. My life is brimming with creative ideas and energy. I'm blessed with healthy, happy children, good friends, a husband I adore, a mostly warm house (thanks Dad for helping install those windows last fall). I can't complain, winter is treating me well.
But that doesn't mean I don't jump for joy, or rather go shutter happy, when I find signs of spring.
Yesterday we braved the icy cold for a walk to campus to partake in local art and music, more on that in a later post. The kids were delighted with the snow mounds and I was camera crazy at the little signs of spring I found.
What are the signs of spring where you are? Oh, and please don't tell me you're going to the beach. Although I'm very happy right now, hearing about 80F beach weather might just put me over the envy edge. And in case you're wondering, spring doesn't actually arrive in Maine till late April. We've got a ways to go but the signs are there, springtime is a comin'.
