Winter is never really bitterly cold here, so maybe I don't appreciate spring as much as people in a colder climate. In fact, it kind of annoys me at first, because suddenly its 80 degrees outside and my cooler isn't on and I have to open every window in my house just to feel like I'm not dying from heat exhaustion. I blame my post-children boiling hot internal body temp.
I do appreciate things about spring. Its not too hot yet. I don't have to put socks on my kids, which means no sock matching when I do laundry. Sandals. Weekly pedicures for my ladies chubby toes. I will never love it like I love fall, but it beats August out of the park.
There are two things that are scarce in winter that make their appearance in spring. Two great and awesome things that make spring okay.
|Sundresses. These shoulders need some sun!|
|Strawberries. Not just any strawberries, ripe, juicy, huge, delicious, CHEAP strawberries. |
These two things make spring and all of its wind that much more bearable.
