|happy spring and easter from us.|
i live in south georgia. i grew up here. and after so many years, i've come to understand that there are just some things you can count on here.
1.St. Patrick's day will be nuts. and probably everyone's favorite holiday.
2.june-september is just bloody miserable. and i know what you're thinking. you're thinking you know what i mean. but you're wrong. unless you know what it's like to exist in 98% humidity (with clear skies and no rain)and 98 degrees at the same time. if you know what that's like, then may the gods of summer have mercy on your soul and bless you for enduring this season from hell.
3.if the weather is at all nice and bearable, there will be sand gnats (and yes, they bite.) and mosquitos the size of your thumb nail to ruin that nice weather. and your sanity.
4.your hair will frizz. even if you don't have an ounce of curl in your hair, it will frizz. fighting it is futile.
5.if you "don't get allergies" you will here. and you will temporarily drive a yellow car, as the pollen gets absolutely nuts for some time.
6.the seasons are completely off. christmas might be warm. it might be cool, but rarely will it ever be cold. the leaves change in january. spring begins in early/mid february. and summer starts in March.
but this year has been different.
it has been legitimately cold for a long time. not freezing. but cold. we would have a day or two of spring-esque weather and then the next week would be cold again. like the heater was still on in our house. like i was still wearing ugg boots and sweatshirts. that kind of cold.
and then, just as i was wondering if spring was going to be bypassed completely, it sprung.
garrett, gilly and i spent our easter weekend with my sister's family (sadly, her family was the only one of my siblings that was able to come for the easter weekend.)the doors were kept open, swimmy suits were worn and we played outside as much as possible. there was even a mini easter egg hunt.
it was a good reminder of just how much i love spring and easter.
it was hard to remember when the blustery wind was blowing in my face and making my hands freeze. but i quickly remembered how lovely spring can be. minus the bugs. because they were, of course, present.
lyrics: if i had a song that i could sing for you i'd sing a song to make you feel this way.
ps. it's officially my birthday week. cue freaking out.
