Virginia Dreaming on Such a Winter's Day

My 9th grade biology teacher always played “California Dreaming” by the Mamas and Papas at the end of class every Friday. He hated Michigan winters and was saving up to spend his retirement there. I can’t remember his name off hand, but I hope that he’s now retired and happy in California.

I have discovered that you don’t necessarily have to move all the way to California to have pleasant winter days. Virginia surprises you every so often. In January we had a series of days where the temperatures were in or near the 60s. Emma, Allison and I took a walk around the neighborhood in short sleeves. It was quite liberating to have beautiful weather in January.

If everyone else is like me, winter is getting pretty darn tiresome. So, to lighten the mood and prepare everyone for images of spring, I’m posting some pictures we took while we played outside without coats in January.

Enjoy! Spring is right around the corner!

ISN'T IT SPRING YET????? I'm so tired of cold weather, bundling up in coats, freezing cold feet that need slippers, wearing sweaters everyday and NEEDING a nightly bath just to de-ice myself.

But what gorgeous weather in these pictures! Can't wait to see it again!

I love my nieces! What beatiful spring queens they are...can't wait to have some equally nice weather here (it snowed 2" today...)
