I know we haven’t really had winter. Okay . . . maybe winter has come in short visits, but I’m just ready for spring. I’m ready for longer days and walks with the dogs that stretch into carefree evenings along embracing wooded pathways. I’m ready for warm sunsets, green grass, and candlelight dinners on the patio with friends. I’m ready to hang up the coats and the mufflers and the gloves (we haven’t really used them that much) and to pull out the Keen sandals and the sunglasses and, oh yes, the kayaks. I’m ready.
