Spring Is Welcome Here


This morning Spring came and I found my mood lifted a bit. In all honesty though, Spring came a week or two back, as soon as I see mated birds in my yard and plum trees in flower, it is spring.

But something clicks in me – that once Spring is here, my meh attitude towards hiking and walking lifts, and suddenly I cannot wait for summer in the mountains (but I’ll take the balmy spring temps at home!)


We celebrated Springs arrival by walking under the flowering trees, some white, some pink and even purple. The rain had stopped and we had brilliant blue skies above. Life was easy. The youngest slept as I pushed them in their jogger stroller.


Nothing ground breaking, but oh what a few miles can do for the heart – and the mind 🙂
