Today there was a competition between my facial expressions and my camera to see which was going to contribute the most to how bad these pictures came out. I'm not sure which one won, but I'm going to go with the camera. It refused to take clear photos today. And, I'm sorry for the phone pictures in the middle there, my camera was about to die, and I wasn't satisfied with the pictures I had taken. I guess it was just one of those days. And, it looks like outfit pictures are going to be indoors this week. Winter decided it wanted to make on last appearance in Michigan this week, so there is going to be a rain/snow mixture keeping me indoors as much as possible this week.

On a brighter note, today is the first say of the Spring is in the Air blog challenge over at Little Girl In the Big World and Brunch with Amber. So, if you haven't signed up for it you should go do that...right now :)

Today's question is:
1.       What do you look forward to most about spring and what about winter are you going to miss? 

I love springtime - the sunshine, the flowers blooming. What could be better? Growing up in Florida and South Carolina, spring time always came early. In Florida, the perfect spring weather only lasts about two weeks, then it gets ridiculously hot outside. But now that I’ve gone through my first winter since the late 90’s, I could not be more excited for spring. 

Things about spring that I'm (not-so patiently) awaiting:
  • The first sighting of blooming flowers in my yard
  • Birds singing in the morning
  • Being able to wear heels and flats to class instead of ugly snow boots
  • Dresses (possibly without tights)
  • The grass returning to a shade that at least somewhat resembles the green color it was before winter
  • Wearing bright colors and not looking like i'm insane since everyone around me is wearing dark colors
  • Less people in sweatpants (hopefully); I'm not sure when it became okay to walk around in baggy mismatched sweatpants 24/7, but I would like it to stop now
  • Not waking up to over a foot of snow outside my door

Things that I'll miss about winter:
  • Super-soft scarves
  • My favorite boots
  • How beautiful everything looks after an ice storm; absolutely everything glitters
  • Winter sunsets; the sun looks so bright compared to the white snow


  1. Dresses, bright colors and flats, yes! :) Thanks so much for playing along!!

  2. I love being able to wear sandals and flip flops. That's one of my favorites. I'll miss being able to wear boots. I just got a pair that I like in December and feel gipped that I got them for such a short time...thanks for playing along!!
