Are You There, Spring? It's Me, Desperate.

I feel like I'm just stuck in limbo a little bit. We have seen a few sunny days where it feels amazing to be outside, but there is still piles of snow in my backyard and one week ago, we had just finished shoveling two feet of snow.

We went to Montana to give our final send off to winter... but there have been two "blizzards" since then. It's the snowiest April on record in Minnesota and I'm beyond over it. I ran away to Texas for a last minute girls' trip and that helped, but there was feet of snow on the ground when I landed so that was rough. The photo above is Texas and the one below is my block this week.

I'm hopeful that winter is done. If it snows again, I might cry. But the idea of summer is getting me through.
I need sunshine, bike rides, green grass, farmer's markets, patios.
I need cabin time, lake time, sunscreen, sandals, grills.
I need to feel the motivation of windows open.
I need to catch up with work, with household crap, with friends and family, with life in general.
I just need to be outside without freezing.

Fingers crossed. We are going to stay above freezing... for at least 6 months.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
