Spring is practically here, and I am here for it! I’m over the grey, dreary days and wintry mixes. Instead, I want sunshine, blue skies, and fresh buds on the trees. Even Buckles, my ten year old Siberian Husky, who pretty much lives for chilly weather, is sick of it. He’s got a pepper in his stepper with the warmer temps!
For me, spring is an exciting time of year. It sort of feels like the New Year, in that it’s a blank slate, a fresh start, a time for renewal. I look forward to setting new personal and professional goals. One of mine this season is to get back in the dance studio. I used to dance as a kid, and I’ve been meaning to get back into it over the last few years, but this season I’m definitely stepping up. I’ve got a few fun trips planned for work I’m excited about, and a family wedding in June that I’m really looking forward to. It’s encouraging to see things start to come together for the year ahead.
Does spring excite you too? If so, I want to hear about it! What are you most looking forward to this season?
