Dear spring: I love you

first day of spring

Tomorrow is March 20th — the first day of spring!

The kids and I have been going stir crazy this winter, and after today’s gorgeous weather, I am really ready for more. I just hope we don’t fall into another cold snap before summer, but this is Ohio, so it’s hard to tell.

A lovely spring haiku

Spring air —
woven moon
and plum scent.

  8. My kids are RIDICULOUSLY excited about the first day of spring. I didn’t even know that it was A Thing. It is kind of nice to see all the green again, though, after a pretty rough winter.

  9. Beautiful picture! We woke up yesterday to snow, but then the sun came out and melted it all. I hope that was our last cold day for this winter!
