Oh, spring. How I've missed you!! I've missed your fresh air, your blue skies, your sunny warmth. I've missed playing outside without a coat. I've missed short sleeves and sandals and, yes, even sunscreen. I've missed playgrounds and zoos and sidewalk chalk and family walks. I've missed the long naps my kids take after spending hours playing outside. I've missed the way I feel energized and motivated and happier when you are here. You took your sweet time coming around this year, but I'm glad you're here now. Welcome back!!
