part of the joy (and frustration) of living in the midwest is that there tend to be anywhere between 3-7 “false springs” before the true spring takes root and the weather starts to look up.
while this can be disheartening, i try to look at this period as a time to really settle in to the idea of the hectic hustle and bustle that is summer and take stock of what i want to carry with me as i move forward.
i also take this time to deep clean my home of the winter stuffiness and whatever baggage (both physical and emotional) remains from the sleeping months.
this summer is one that i’m looking forward to for various reasons, but mostly, i am just thrilled with the idea to get out in the sun and soak up the warm, soothing rays of light and breathe the fresh air of the outdoors again. it’s been a long time coming and not something i take for granted.
what are you looking forward to this spring?
