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 earth...new 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.
