It has been really beautiful here the last few days! The sun has been shining and it has been in the 60's. I love it! I've been waiting all winter for spring and it is finally here.
Sara and I took advantage of the warm weather the last few days to run some errands and enjoy some time just the two of us in the car. Here's my little diva soaking up the sun in the back seat. Got to love the glasses!
Spring makes everything so much better, no matter what else is going wrong in my life. The sun and the warmth just give me the feeling that I can overcome any challenge. It also makes my need to clean and get organized almost unbearable. With the family moving soon, there will be a lot to do when it comes to getting reorganized into a new lifestyle and schedule for Sara and I. I have plans to rearrange the furniture and do some painting in a couple rooms. And since I have pretty much figured out what I want to do, now I just have to wait until I can do it...which is by far the hardest part. Once I have a plan for anything I rarely wait more than 5 minutes to start working on it, unless I am forced to like I am now. They will be moving in about 4 weeks, and although I know that Sara and I will miss them a lot, I know that it will be a good thing for all of us as well.
There are so many great things about spring that I can do right now, so I am living them up to help me continue to use patience. And one of the things I love the best is rolling down the windows of my car and turning up the tunes! The other one that I love is getting to dig out all my cute summer dresses and all my cute sandals and shoes for when it is warm on a consistent basis. Its easier to dress nice and look cute when I'm out with my friends or on a date when my wardrobe is twice the size! Plus, when I dress nice I feel good about myself and my confidence is so much better then when I have to wear bulking sweaters and pants all the time.
Spring also helps to make me clearly see all the wonderful things in my life, and its nice to take time to sit on the step of my front porch and think about those things while I watch the kids play in the yard. With so many of us still living together, it is a HUGE relief to be able to let the kids burn off their energy outside. Not to mention that the fresh air does us all good, and its great to get to air out the house as well since its been closed up so long. Warm weather is the best!
Too bad it won't last! We're suppose to get snow here on Friday! Boo winter, go away!
