Things I Love - Spring

Things I Love...

This is my feature where I get to share something that I just love. Since you are my friends, I like sharing things I love with others. It could be anything from a new product, food, recipe, song, image, to a person and everything in between. This will be something I am completely doing on my own, without pressure or compensation from a company, author, PR/Marketing firm, friend, business owner, etc. This will just be something that makes me happy and I want to share it with you. Enjoy some love!

Today's love is............................Spring! 
 
I am waiting and waiting for spring to get here.  Only 10 more days until the calendar says spring even though I know Mother Nature doesn't always work by that calendar.  I am so anxious for the days to be sunnier, for that smell of spring in the air, to see the buds on all the trees and most of all....to see my flowers start to peek through the brown ground.  I love spotting my crocus, daffodils, and tulips stretching up through the ground.  It reminds me that warm days are coming and soon all the snow and cold will be a memory.
 
This week I received my shipment of daffodils from the American Cancer Society.  You buy bundles of them to support their American Cancer Society foundation and research and I do it every year.  I place some in the fridge and some on the table so I can extend their time with me as long as possible.  This week I also put out all my spring decor.  I love placing all my bunnies and lambs and other spring decor out around the house.  Soon I will be planning our oldest son's 11th birthday and finding goodies for the kids' Easter baskets.  So many things to LOVE about Spring!

I really wish Spring came by the calendar. Here in Fairbanks, spring is a long way off...
