Enjoying Spring This Year

Spring started about a month ago, and I’ve really been enjoying the outdoors, soaking in the sunshine and breathing in the fresh air. Wildflowers are blooming in the yard, the leaves are green, and the air smells deliciously sweet. This spring weather is ideal for me; it’s not too cold, and it’s not too hot. Every day, I try to find an excuse to walk or sit outside.

We’ve been through an incredibly busy season. I’ve often wished for more free time to just sit and breathe. It looks like our lives will be a little less hectic soon, so as I’m exhaling this lovely spring air, I’m letting out a sigh of relief.

What do you like about spring? Are you celebrating Easter tomorrow? If so, Happy Easter!
