I think I speak for all of us when I say I have NEVER longed for spring as much as I am longing for it now. I am so ACHING for spring I can’t even stand it. This winter has been a beating and I am OVER IT.
I’m a Texas girl after all, and we like our weather nice and warm down here, and our NORMAL winters that last about 3 days are JUST FINE. Break out the coat and the Uggs, wear them 3 times, THEN YOU PACK THOSE THINGS AWAY because FLIP-FLOP SEASON LASTS 362 DAYS A YEAR. That’s how it’s supposed to work, down here in Texas.
Remember the days when we got to wear swimsuits on Spring Break? Yeah, those were the good ol’ days…
You’re breaking us, Winter, for the LOVE. All this cold, dreary, icy weather that WON’T LEAVE ME ALONE has me getting all misty-eyed over the garden that isn’t quite here yet…
And sort of misty-eyed from, uh, pollen too.
Oh, sweet harbingers of better days ahead… and also: harbingers of itchy eyes.
Such a THRILL to see tiny green leaves poking their heads out of the ground, especially after a long, long, long winter. Did I mention it was long?
So much hope. So much expectation of a bright and sunny new season.
And… uh… so much sneezing. And a tiny bit of sore throat…
It happens every year. Winter gets tedious, and at the first sign of spring’s arrival, we can’t even help ourselves: the first chance we get we dive head-first into our new garden, and inevitably, head-first into feeling really lousy.
As happy as I am to see spring arrive, I REALLY want to avoid that allergy nonsense that goes along with it. My sore throat is here already, but I have my go-to HALLS® Honey-Lemon drops at the ready. It’s a tradition, really; I know there are other cough drops out there, but I’m a classic HALLS Honey-Lemon girl. In fact, I’ve had one in my mouth the whole time I’ve been writing this post.
Here’s hoping that this year, my HALLS will knock this sore throat out so we can get outside and enjoy our garden before our tiny green babies get any bigger. I think after the brutal never-ending winter, we deserve a bright and sunny (and allergy-free) spring.
