TIGF - Spring

I haven't done a "Things I'm Grateful For Friday" post for awhile and I decided to do one today because I could use a dose of positivity.  I've been kind of immersed in some negative vibes lately and I just don't want to be stuck in that muck.  So, instead I'm choosing happiness and focusing on some good.

So what am I grateful for this week?  Quite simply - spring.  Spring has arrived early in Minnesota and it's been amazing this week.  I am loving not having to bundle up Ollie in a heavy jacket every day to take him to my parents house or other places.  I love that I don't have to go out early and warm up the car for him.  I am loving that we've been able to go for a walk every evening this week and it's a bonus that it's lighter later now too thanks to Daylight Savings time.  I am loving pulling out all of my pastel colored clothing.  I love that I have heard birds chirping in the morning.  I love that I was even able to open the sun roof in my car one day this week!

This winter was really much easier compared to last winter, so it's funny that I felt such a longing for spring to be here.  I think it's probably because the last two years we have had such long, draining winters and barely any spring to speak of.  So this year the early arrival feels like such a gift and I hope to enjoy every moment and I hope it's here to stay!

And there's someone else at our house who is pretty excited about the early arrival of spring too.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I hope you are getting to enjoy some nice weather wherever you are as well!
