The sun was out all day yesterday. All day. And it was warm like springtime.

Which is miraculous considering Colorado doesnโ€™t ever get a springtime. It usually snows 534 feet and makes me hate everyone who lives in a climate that does have springtime.

But not this year, folks. Or at least not yesterday.

It made me want to hug (or lick) a tree.


It made me want to crawl around wearing a flowery onsie in the front yard and point out that there is indeed green underneath the brown crunchy grass.


โ€ฆoh wait, that was Adrienne.

It just made me want to go for a walk, frolic, toss my giggling baby into the air, and eat a salad.

Month 11

Yes, a salad. You know the weather is turning when I am exchanging a big fat bowl of potatoes and butter for a salad.


Not to mention this salad was eaten at dinnertime.

DINNER. You see that light streaming through the windows onto my salad?


That was at DINNER.

Granted, I eat dinner at 5:30pm, but still. It was dinner, there was light outside.

Hallelujah, summer is coming.
