Spring has sprung!

Well, for the last couple of days it has and today is no exception! On my lunch break I had my windows down and my radio up. I was singing every song that came on the radio as loud as I could and I was in bliss.  I seriously love spring and I love summer even more.  I can't stand cold weather, snow is great when it gets you out of work, but this past winter season, it snowed on weekends and ruined big plans! Total poo.  So winter is on my blacklist and spring has officially become one of my favorite seasons.  This spring, as the flowers begin to bloom, I plan on heading out to the botanical gardens in Vienna for some good old fashioned photography fun and maybe begin work on my non-existent tan. Because I love spring so much, I decided to play along with Keeping up with Kelly's Top Three Thursday - why?  Because her question is: what are your three favorite things about spring?
So away we go with my happy top three favorite things about this spring time weather. 
1. I love the temperature.  Being able to sleep with the heat off and windows open at night, listening to the sounds of nature outside is a great way to fall asleep. 
2. It is the turning point to summer! I love summer. I love the beach, going to amusement parks, camping, and being out on the water. This year our summer comes early because we are spending our honeymoon in Fiji!!
3. The start of baseball season...I've read this a couple of other places too. But something about baseball just brings back amazing childhood memories and my fiance and his family are huge Cubbies fans and my family are die hards supporting the Red Sox Nation. I fall in between. I enjoy going to games in the summer, eating pretzels, drinking a beer and singing "take me out to the ball game" during the 7th inning stretch. I can't think of a better summer evening, and the only way to get there is to have spring training start in the spring!

Ok, so I know two of those are more pertaining to summer, but you can't have summer without first experiencing spring. And I love the colors and sounds of spring, so it is, without a doubt, my second favorite season. :-D

  3. I love sleeping with the windows open! Unfortunately, I'm a little OCD when it comes to security... it's one of my quirks... so I just can't let myself do it!
