just a season...

Oh, happy Friday to everyone! Spring is finally here and I’m in a good mood. I love that we live in an area with four distinct seasons….but they sure do drive me crazy sometimes. I like to say that I love all four of the seasons, but really, I cannot stand early spring. By the time late February rolls around, I’m just about ready to take a hostage because I’m so sick of the overcast sky and cold air. Blah, blah, blah. I agree with Aleah, I never really realize how much I need some sunshine until it comes back and then I suddenly feel alive again. Too bad our winters tend to last half of the year J. We’ve now had about a week of good weather and I’m falling in love (again) with our little city. Our baby grass is popping up and our lilac is blooming—we actually have some living things in our yard…which is an improvement from last year! Aaaahhhh, Spring!

I’m also enjoying this season of life. Like I said earlier, our routine is becoming easier and we’re spending more time at home these days because of nap schedules. I’m actually really enjoying it because instead of rushing around trying to get to this toddler activity and the next one, we’re forced to slow down. We play outside more and enjoy more plain-old togetherness. Sure beats getting kids in and out of the car multiple times! Slowing down is a really good thing once in a while. At times, I start to feel a little stir-crazy or guilty about laying low, but I am reminded that this is just a season and it won’t last forever. I know that in years to come this time of schedule will be impossible so I am savoring the moment while we have it.

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven.

I’m looking forward to a hiking date with my husband tonight, a picnic in the park tomorrow, and a little two night trip with my mom and sister (plus two little boys :) on Sunday. Fun days ahead…have a great weekend!

I have to admit that spring and fall are my favorite seasons of the year. I hate extreme weather; whether it be really cold or really hot. Spring and fall bring such a nice balance... I hope you had a wonderful date with Joel. I'm so glad that you got to get away, just the two of you.

Side note: Thank you SO much for the thoughtful card. It made my day and I'm so thankful knowing that you were praying for me! Joel and the boys are so lucky to have you in their lives. And I know that I thank God for your friendship often. Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

I am the same way. We have 4 seasons here and I'm not a big fan of winter, especially by the time February rolls around. By then, I am just ready to get out of the house.

I hope you have fun on your date! That sounds like my ideal date. I love hiking, biking, just being outside. How wonderful to spend some time w/your mom and sister too.

Happy Mother's Day! :)
