What's there not to love about spring? We have spent so much time out in the beautiful weather that our evening bath water is literally yellow from the pollen and live-oak blossoms! But it's amazing how even pollen-filled air just feels so good and healthy.
Although I wouldn't trade these beautiful days for anything, I eavesdropped on the girls playing before dinner and realized that they were longing for another time: Christmas eve. They had on their pajamas they received from us on Christmas eve, they were pretending to leave snacks for Santa, and they kept opening the front door and yelling, "Nana and Papa are here!" It was all I could do not to sit down and book a flight for the family to Syracuse for the weekend!
