Have I mentioned lately how ready I am for spring to be here? So ready that I’m combatting the cold, cloud-covered days with bright colors and floral prints. Call it wishful thinking, call it denial. But instead of sitting back and counting down the days, I’m diving right with my favorite season of the year.
