With spring within our grasp, I am feeling the need to wear more colors. I feel like I've been pulling out a lot of grays and dark tones and I'm ready for warmer tones and brighter colors. Today is only a small step in that direction as I still wore a lot of brown, but a pink sweater and white t-shirt help perk it up just a bit!
It's still quite cold out. Last year at this time I was already wearing sandals and going out with bare legs. It was in the 60's for highs! St. Patrick's Day it was in the low 80's - I remember sitting out in the backyard with the Pants Monkey while he was smoking meats in his smoker for the first time and just basking in the warm sun - but also scratching my head and being puzzled by the weather! It won't be like that this year. We'll maybe get some 40's this weekend if we're lucky. Yes I did just go on about the weather for an entire paragraph. That's what we do in MN.

It's kind of my least favorite time of year in a way - the snow is melting and it looks dirty and ugly. There are lots of puddles around so it's easy for your feet to get wet and your car is dirty all the time. But, knowing there is light at the end of the tunnel does make it easier to deal with and fortunately, it only lasts a little while.
You know what else there is light at the end of the tunnel on? My shopping ban! Just another week and a half or so - because technically it ends with Palm Sunday and I planned to kind of cheat and break the ban that weekend anyway because of Amanda's vintage sale. I can't miss out on her new shop's grand opening! If you're local, be sure to check it out, the details are here.
