Hallelujah! I Made It!



SPRING IS HERE! SPRING IS HERE! SPRING IS HERE!





I have never before been so happy to see spring in all my life! I made it through the LONG, GRAY winter and I am so happy that spring is here! I am not exaggerating when I say that March had 7 or less days of full sun. This Texas girl was starvin' for some sunlight and heat. March was BRUTAL for me emotionally and I am so happy it is April and signs of Spring are finally here, can't you tell!?! I have heard that the only city that has more overcast days than Pittsburgh is Seattle. I believe it now that I have lived through it!

Flip Flops!
Short Sleeves!
Playing Outside!
Flowers!
Daffodils!
Open Windows!
Sunny Days!
Green!
Bunnies in the Backyard!
Walks!
Bike Riding!
Playing Outside with the Neighbors!
Going to the Park!


NO MORE:

Bulky Winter Coats Cluttering the Entry Way!
Mittens, Boots, Scarves!
20 Pairs of Shoes at the Front Door!
10 Days of Gray in a Row!
Snow!
Ice on the Car!
Pricey Gas Heater Bills!
Dreary Weather Day After Day After Day After Day!

SPRING IS HERE! SPRING IS HERE! SPRING IS HERE! SPRING IS HERE!
