Let it Spring! Let it Spring! Let it Spring!

Who doesn't love the spring? I dare you to find me someone. Now that we're into the second week of April, spring is in full force and I think we're all enjoying it. I love the changing of seasons no matter what the season is, but spring is the most exciting. Time for new life after the doldrums of winter. Let me list you a few reasons:

  • General Conference happens every spring. What a great weekend.
  • Color! I love that the there is so much natural color in the world right now.
  • The sun comes out from hiding.
  • Open-toed shoes. Yes! Let those toes breath!

  • Bulbs. Tulips, daffodils, iris, hyacinths. You name it, I love it. I remember spending a spring break in DC one year. The tulips out there were divine. Maybe I'll have to plan a trip to Holland one spring.
  • Speaking of DC...Jessica has recently reminded me of the Cherry Blossoms out there. Beautiful. I love that trees flower in the spring.

  • Easter. Easter is such a beautiful holiday.
  • Flying kites. I can't tell you how much time I've spent untangling kite string already this year. I love it.
  • Neighborhood kids are out on their bikes.
  • People seem to be is in the air.
  • New life.
  • Warm weather.
  • Picnics.
  • Getting out of the house and playing outside.
  • Longer days.
  • Bright colored clothes.
  • Yet another year that long shorts are in fashion and can be found at any store worth shopping at.
  • Opening my windows and letting the breeze blow on through.
  • Spring smells good.
  • Sidewalk chalk.
  • Outings to the park.
  • Washing your car in the driveway.
  • Yard work...which I only enjoy the first couple times in the spring.

I feel like I have a million more reasons that just aren't coming to mind. I'm a little out of sorts this morning...but that doesn't stop me from enjoying springtime.

I love Spring the most, too!! I wore flip flops yesterday, but failed to see how bad my toes looked!! I really need to paint them! I got new shorts this week and can't wait to wear them! I am loving the long short!

We went swimming today and tomorrow are going to set up our pool. We love being outside.

It snowed her today. I think we are skipping spring and going straight to summer.

Wasn't it just snowing there not too long ago?

Kim said...

I'd be happy about spring if it didn't snow today!!!

I'm going to have to say it's my favorite. It's when I want to get married actually, in the spring. Although, good spring weather in this country happens about mid february. :-/
