i want s.p.r.i.n.g!

i want w.a.r.m.t.h!

i want to lay in the grass and have the sun seep red through my eyelids and do nothing but eat fresh fruit and think about seeds!

i want warm soil under my fingernails.

i want bulbs to wake up and color my yard.

i want to take family walks at 8:30 in the evening with a light sweater wrapped around my waist because it's too warm to use it.

i want to take the dogs swimming up the canyon.

i want to roast (and eat) too many marshmallows and sleep in the pedi-van all stinky and campfire-y and such.

i want to plan and plant a vegetable garden.

i want to eat fresh peas straight from the pod.

i want to teach kort to ride a bike with no training wheels.

i want to enjoy beautiful sidewalk murals courtesy of brilliant, local, 5-year-old artists.

i want spring, March,

is that so much to ask?

all i want is a little sun, and instead

you give me a BLIZZARD?

not nice, March.

not. nice. at. all.

but don't let it happen again.

Kristen said...

love it! for some reason i have thought todays storm wasn't too bad. i'm craving spring too but you gotta admit.. today's storm was kinda gorgeous (as long as the snow melts in a day or two!)!

SO said...

Great pictures! But yeah, March is on more snow storms.

I'm so with you. I hate March. Hate it. So bad. I want to run outside and not have to wear 85 layers of clothes in order to survive.

I am a little sick of winter you know something I never noticed about your boy that is sooooo CUTE( because before I noticed this I pretty much wanted him to marry Kenadie lol) he has FRECKLES.....those pics made his freckles across his nose look SO sweet!

Nikki said...

such a cute post. You got the cutest pics of Kort! It's totally opposite here..I'm dreading summer lol, it's too humid and hot in the summer here.

Oh! I LOVED the pictures! I'm kind of a snow baby though so don't mind me. It couldn't be that I RARELY get to see snow or anything. On the bright side, you can still plan your garden all you want from the comfort of your living room or kitchen table. Wherever you plan best.

AND next march, you could be spending in the Bahamas and a dear friend's house should you so desire! :)
