Isn't it the best?


That perfectly almost-warm, extra-sunny, pre-spring kind of day.

The day when you can finally crack the windows a bit and welcome some much needed fresh air.

The day when you can play outside, while soaking up the sun, without the hassle of the million winter layers.

The day when you watch your daughter re-learn how to ride her Dora big wheel, noticing that this time her feet reach the pedals. Helping her get situated, all while your son looks on, as he samples sand from the driveway, clapping.

The day when you feel for certain, that you have made it through another winter and that indeed, spring is close.

You wear your running sneakers instead of your Uggs and feel...perfectly well. You eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and pickles with your best girl, because she asks you too. You clean out your car. You feel motivated and productive.

There is a sure sense of good things to come.

Ahhhhh. Isn't it the best?

Bethany said...

We have it here too ... is that a ski hill behind your house, or just lots of electric lines? LOL

I'm jealous. We have cold and snow again today.

Enjoy your warmth.
