Let's just pretend

Let's just pretend that the first day of spring actually means something other than the incessant cold, gray days that have been here for weeks upon weeks upon weeks. Let's pretend it means COLOR. And brightness. And newness.

And leopard print.


Is it warm where you are? Springy?

Tomorrow's high for us is 33 degrees. And possibly snow.

Not that I really had different expectations. I've lived in Ohio long enough to know it's not going to magically become balmy and sunshiny just because of a little thing like an equinox. I have also lived here long enough to realize you just gotta do what you just gotta do. So, I've been making the inside of the house festive and colorful... declaring - despite the snow and freezing winds - SPRING! At least in our house!

Did you notice I'm painting the stairs? Finally. After, like, four years of bare, unfinished wood. Even half done, they look much different. Makes me excited to paint the rest.

So, I've been keeping busy. Making the most of free moments to paint, sew, and spiff. I think I'm freaking out a little knowing that my life is about to be completely overtaken (again) by soccer season. I won't have much free time at all then. I feel like I need to strike while the iron is hot. I have the energy and the motivation right now, so I'm going for it.

Soccer practice begins in less than two weeks.

Fun :)

I didn't even realize it's the first day of spring. But I LOVE spring! I'm feeling lucky that things really are feeling different here. Still cold, but not as cold. And things are blooming. I wish we'd had more of a real winter, but really, I'm pretty grateful for it all. Love that hat, too! :-)

We have had a spring days, mixed in with already hot days, mixed in with cold days. I like spring but in Oklahoma I am well aware of what is around the corner! HOT!!!
