This weekend, we turned the clocks forward as part of Daylight Savings Time. This has always meant the start of all the signs of spring. The "official" first day of spring is only 10 days away. There's also consistently warmer temperatures, singing birds, buds on the trees, and of course Spring Break.
With the ridiculously cold winter we have had and all the snow that is constantly present, it hasn't seemed like spring will ever arrive. I'm more than ready to hang up my winter coat for good. Thankfully, my husband has come on board and is just as anxious for winter to say goodbye and for spring to arrive as I am.
Today, I arrived home to find that he had decided to hurry spring up just a little bit. He and the boys had built a fire in the fire pit. This is one of the staples of spring evenings at our house. We sat on the patio, enjoying the warmth of the fire, musing about what tasks need to be completed in the yard before the trees and bushes started to bloom. Come on spring, hurry up and get here!
