Today I am packing away clothing made of corduroy or wool, as well as clothing that has a turtleneck. I am also shoving winter coats into crates and then shoving those crates into basement corners.
It's not necessarily warm, and I could wind up wishing I still had some of those things within easy reach.
But I don't care.
Spring begins today.
Although it's still chilly, I want jackets, and cotton skirts, and t-shirts with cardigans, and mary janes with no tights.
Although my knees still ache and the wind still has a bite, I'm running with a little more pep, and a smile on my face, and faaaaar fewer layers.
Although I have a crazy, full, busy, most likely tiring week ahead, I can see spring break on the horizon.
I am ready for spring.
Ready for sunshine
Ready for outside.
Ready for a bicycle and my legs to be my main modes of transportation.
Ready for open windows.
Ready for fresh air.
Spring, I am so glad you're here.
