Spring Forward...I'm Lovin' It


I LOVE Spring!! The weather is improving (please Mother Nature, let it stick around), the flowers are beginning to bloom, and it's staying light a little later (which somehow makes all of my days seem a little more productive in Mommyland). I'm excited for more outside playtime (and less chaos and disaster INSIDE my house), more bike rides, more meals cooked on the grill (and not by me), more visits to the farmers market, more short sleeves (and less laundry), more patio weekend lunches (with a beer or a bloody), and just more fresh air...it does my body and my mind a whole lotta good this time of year. Happy unofficial (just 11 days until it's "for real") Spring, y'all!!

Blessings,
The Buzz
