Five Things I Love About Spring

  1.  Flowers!  Daffodils and forsythia are my favorites since they bloom so early.

  2. Farmer's markets!  I got out of the habit of going this winter but I'm excited to get local produce and fresh veggies. I also like to take Babyface so he can help pick out food and is more likely to like new things if he's involved in choosing them.
  3. Light!  Sunrise gets earlier and earlier and it stays light later.  In the winter, I feel like I'm getting up in the middle of the night and when I leave work it's pitch black.  For my birthday, my dad got me this wake-up light (it makes sounds too) and it was so helpful in the winter.  It's a very gentle way to wake upfirst light, then gradually increasing soundsand a very nice change from being jarred awake by an alarm.
  4. Planning!  I have to put fun on the agenda, otherwise it just gets pushed to the back burner.  I've scheduled day trips to parks, the bay, a festival, camping (Babyface's first time), a road trip to hang out with my in-laws, and a trip to visit my mom.  Here's hoping the weather cooperates.
  5. Rain!  Even when we get a lot of it, spring rain is lovely.  Plus it washes all of the pollen from the air.
