Spring Fever



I am not typically this impatient for spring. I like cold weather, and since I live in Texas and the bluebonnets are already blooming along the highways, that means it is only a matter of time until the heat wave hits.

I haven't been keeping up with blogs as much in recent weeks, both others and my own, out of restlessness. I was finally catching up on some recent entries tonight and I forgot how funny and insightful complete strangers can be. I just spent the past two hours reading, so seriously... feel appreciated.

Before Easter I was doing some closet-cleaning, in preparation for my move into a house in Dallas with some friends at the end of this month, and I found myself pulling out a handful of new spring and summer dresses. They were just begging for a tan body and some face-time with the world outside of my closet. Easter Sunday I had planned to wear a new pink ruffle-collared dress, but alas, Sunday brought torrential downpours and temperatures in the high 40's.

It was not meant to be.

This Saturday, however, I have a wedding to attend. I know- what's this?- a wedding?! That's right- more friends, more flowers, more vows, and also the perfect opportunity to finally start wearing my Spring 2009 Collection.

“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”

I just got to wear one of my favorite spring dresses for Easter. And we're heading to a couple weddings, so my dresses will get more time outside of my closet :)
