Spring has Sprung!

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as the sunny spring day. 
~ W. Earl Hall

It's official.  Spring has sprung up here!  "Unseasonably mild" has been the name of the game this entire winter and Scott and I have experienced but one little snow storm since we've been home in February. It has been...lovely.  The sun has been shining, temperatures have been in the 60's and I for one am grateful.  

I don't think there is a more invigorating time than spring.  People everywhere seem to let out a collective sigh of relief as they fling open their windows, open their front doors and stretch out their weary limbs in the spring day sun.  Smiles are bigger, eyes are brighter, friendly greetings are offered just a little more readily... Every day brings a new sprout, a new flower, a visual change in the life.  It's a time of awakening, of renewal, of hope and of growth.  This particular spring is extra special to us because it is bringing with it the best gift of all; our baby.  Our little springtime sailor girl is officially less than 10 days away from her due date.  In the meantime, it's business as usual as we wait patiently (and excitedly!) for when she's good and ready to join us on the outside.

You summed up the beauty of spring and the wonderful, fuzzy feelings that come with it perfectly! We are experiencing the same mild winter over here in Montana and so appreciative of the warming days and glimpses of green appearing.

Well said! If you've got to be in a 4-season climate, make the most of it! If the 3 of you need a sailing fix on the big lake later this spring or summer, look us up! Our new babe was born on March 1.

Feels like winter's just getting started here in Northern California! Our first big storm of the year is hammering us all week! Still got to get my runs in though ~
I found your blog a couple weeks ago and I'm 1000% inspired by everything you're doing, from blogging, to sailing, to making a go at non-convention. Thank you for sharing, and we hope someday (soon!)to be following in your footsteps. I look forward to commenting and following you in the future.

ps - we have a blog that we hope will eventually serve the same purpose yours does!
