As I enjoyed the luxury of making my way to work this morning without icy roads and cold temperatures, I realized how happy I am about the first day of spring! Spring marks a fresh new start – flowers blooming, spring cleaning, retiring a winter wardrobe for summer clothes, and trading in those heavy winter boots for sneakers and flip flops. Spring brings brighter mornings, sunnier afternoons, and longer evenings. Spring means gardening, family dinners in the backyard, drinks on the patio, and long walks in the park.
As I not-so-patiently await more benefits of spring, I am also looking forward to welcoming the season with the Easter long weekend. I hope you also take advantage of the longer days, unseasonably warm weather, and fast approaching long weekend to celebrate spring, the outdoors, family time, and great food.
