Signs of Spring

I took these photos specifically for this post and the next day it snowed. I don't just yearn for the warm temperatures and the beauty of Spring, but today, I am wishing for summer - yes, the hot temperatures, the warm sun, flip flops and sundresses and vacation by the water.

Doug was not feeling well when he came home this evening and the kids were not being very cooperative. I decided to give Doug some peace and take the kids for a stroll. There was something in the air - you know that cooler breeze with a little warmth from the sun. The kind you feel from time to time while walking on the beach by the ocean. And in the quiet of our walk I was wishing for the ocean.

We have had a very busy past few weeks and maybe my wanting to skip the Spring and go straight to summer is I need the down time the hotter months bring. Maybe it is because I have been away from the ocean too long. Who knows... all I know is that as much as I love Spring flowers and the cool air, I love the water and warm temperatures more. So heres to dreaming about the months ahead and the relaxation they usually bring! :)
