The kids are yelling for me to join them on the couch as they look out the big, back window. Jovie has made a life-altering discovery… “MOM! There are teeny-tiny flowers blooming in the backyard!!! Look! Look!” Our half-dressed, two year old echoes the excitement, “Loo! Loo! Mommy!”
I dry my sudsy, wet hands off on the stripped, tea towel and peer out the window. Sure enough, spring is slowly opening her rested eyes. Teeny-tiny, white flowers are sprinkled all over our backyard, and the very beginning of buds are growing on the trees.
“Mom, can I go put some shorts on now?” 😉
It may be a little chilly for shorts, but spring is right around the corner. Just thought I’d share. <3
“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
― Mark Twain
