It’s springtime in Ohio, y’all. FINALLY. It has been a long, hard winter and we have EARNED this reprieve from wind chills below zero and snow piles tall enough to lose my house in.
I am a summer girl. I love dresses that twirl, painted toenails, walks in the park with my beloved Boston Terrier, sleeping with the windows open, the heat of the sun on my cheeks, naps on my patio….I could go on forever about the things I love about summer. Winter on the other hand… I am currently a high school English teacher, and in my opinion, the only good thing about winter is that sometimes we’re lucky enough as educators to have temperatures drop below “I can’t feel my face!” and snow accumulate to more than “I’ve lost my dog. Where is Dewey?! He’s been swallowed by the snow!” Needless to say, I loathe winter. I’ll even take warm weather and rain puddles over frigid cold and snow slush.
When Columbus’ first day of digits above 50 registered on my weather app, I was once again affirmed that there is a God and he wants us to be tan.
