Spring is in the air!

Though the weather today is a little less amazing than the rest of the week so far, I am still excited to see the end of winter. Spring cannot come soon enough! Mind you, I like winter but I have had enough of it for now. I want to see the robins hunting for food in my yard. I want to see the sparrows building their nest in the tree outside my window. I want to take my dog for a walk without worrying about slipping on the ice and snow. I want to feel the warm sun on my skin. I want to see the buds on the trees and the daffodils in my garden.

Today is overcast and a bit chilly, but for the last seven days it has been absolutely amazing! I have been able to head out on the forest trails for some incredible hikes. I love being out in nature. Hopefully, this slight downturn in the weather won't last too long.
