February 28…I know we still have a pretty thick snow cover outside, I am also sure we have more coming but I will gladly flip my calendar tomorrow to March with a smile on my face.
I can’t explain why, but winter for me is officially over in March. I know technically Spring does arrive in March, but that’s not it. In my eyes, I have made it through the worse, December, January and February. March is when the snow cover really starts to melt. By the end of the month I can usually see the edges of my lawn, daylight savings time begins again and we start planning some of our Spring/Summer outings.
We always have such a busy month, with my birthday at the beginning of the month, my brother’s birthday in the middle and my hubby’s at the end it’s like a month of celebrations. We never have any big parties or anything but just a simple dinner is exciting when you’ve been enclosed inside for months due to one of the harshest winters we have had in a long time.
We will be attending our favorite kayaking convention real soon. We have a great Easter celebration planned for April traveling to some gorgeous waterfalls. We have started our list of hikes we want to take this summer. We have already planned a few camping trips, and can’t wait until the ice on area rivers melt. Just get me out, let me breathe fresh air, see people and enjoy nature.
