While we do still have patches of snow on the grass, it is rapidly melting and on Saturday I noticed the first signs of spring in my yard as green shoots are starting to make their way above ground (if you look closely in the photo you can see a patch of snow behind the green.)
We were out Saturday evening enjoying the warmer weather and dusting the scooters off after a long winter. It felt so good to be out there without coats and boots! My nephew seems to share my hatred for shoes because we were both outside barefoot. He, however was the only one to run through the snow in his bare feet - I just stood there and watched him do it because I thought it would make a cute photo.
Is winter still holding on at your house or am I the last person to see spring?
There are times when I feel like I'm experiencing my own personal spring. I can feel myself growing stronger and getting ready to break out of my winter hibernation - ready to move forward to a brighter, shinier me. This song reminds me of those times.
