you know that moment when you are outside for the first time in long time and the sun is shining so strongly that even though there's still snow on the ground you can comfortably walk around with just a fleece jacket?
yeah. that moment happened for me yesterday.
i could smell the end of winter and the beginning of spring. then i realized just how much time i have spent holed up in walled spaces all winter and it made me feel claustrophobic to think that i will have to go back inside.
one of my many favorite things about winter up north is how absolutely grateful it makes you of the sun. each spring is like the first spring and everything is possible.
