Dear Spring, We Need You

“Mom! Did you hear that it’s supposed to be like 45 degrees next week?! That’s almost swimming weather, right?” – Liam, age 9

Every March, I am pretty sure that I have never been SO ready for winter to be over. This year is no different. The cold temperatures have left me trapped in the house with my face pressed against the window, longing to enjoy the sunshine without freezing my face off. 

I cannot wait for spring weather and everything that comes with it. So, in an effort to mope less, and wait excitedly for spring, I have decided to take a look at all of the things I am looking forward to!

Dear Spring, I need you because….

Could I be wearing anymore clothes!?

I will lose approximately 10 pounds, just by not having to wear sweaters and boots every day!

THIS bridge, on a trail, through the woods, is almost as excited to see me as I am to see it! My feet and my mountain bike will take turns flying over it as I breath in the warm air that doesn’t hurt my face.

Bonfires aren’t just for summer at my house. As long as there isn’t snow on the ground, we like to enjoy a warm fire by the pond.

There isn’t much that beats sitting on the deck, with my feet up, enjoying a glass of wine. Ahhhh…

Spontaneous day trips with the girls of Sparkle.Pounce. don’t happen when the air is so cold that it hurts your face. BUT…with spring comes the excitement of road trips and adventure!

And finally….RACES!!! More specifically…trail races!!! Hot cocoa races can be fun, but they don’t even compare to runs where I have to wear sunscreen and don’t have to thaw out my toes and hands when I’m done.

Those are just a few of the reasons why I need spring…STAT.
