we made it!
I'm taking a minute to sit with this comforting thought: we made it. We made it through a frigid, never ending winter. We made it to spring. Insert huge sigh right here. Ahhhhh. There were times when I really started to think it wasn't going to happen. I waited so long and tried my best to be patient; it only feels fair now to stop and enjoy this wonderful, wonderful time of year.
Do you ever wait, and wait, and wait for something only to breeze right through it when it finally comes? I found myself doing this with the warmer side of spring. I was so excited that we finally reached temperatures above 50 that I mentally jumped right past spring to dreaming of summer days spent swimming and gardening and hiking and...well you get the idea.
I'm getting down on myself for getting excited about another great time of year (especially up north!), BUT I don't want to forget that I waited a long time for right now. And right now is very, very good.
So this is how you'll find me this weekend: doing my best to be present and soak up this beautiful spring season.
Happy Friday! What do you have planned for this weekend?
