Well, we waited and waited and waited and it's finally here, the first day of Spring. Spring is my third favorite season, only because it's so unpredictable. You never know, it could be nice one day and a foot of snow the next. I'll take Summer and Fall as my favorites anytime.

But, the great thing about Spring is that Summer is in the on deck circle, meaning soon we'll be on the lakes and enjoying the outdoors without being almost mummified in Winter apparel.

One thing I really enjoy about Spring is the fresh green we get. The budding trees, baseball start up, sleeping with the windows open and all the outdoor festivals.

So, day one of Spring is here and it couldn't have come soon enough, after a kind of brutal Winter. We survived!
