is spring around the corner, or WHAT!?

I'm SOOOOOOO over winter.....I'm ready to see that first wildflower poke out on the mountainside!This morning we woke up to snow on the ground and snow steadily falling...and I almost wanted to crawl back into my bed with Astrid and pull the cover over our heads! I love snow but I'm ready for Spring.

At the end of winter I always get an itch....a deep longing for change. This year especially, I feel pale and cooped up and at the whim of whatever Mother Nature decides. Since I can't change the weather or make that inevitable change of seasons happen quicker...I needed to make a change to something I DO have control over, and I've been meaning to do this for a while. Boy oh boy do I have grey hairs sprouting up all over my head!...so I made a change to RED - and - VOILA! I feel like a new woman!!! At least for a little while - I got a non-permanent color so it should last up to 6 weeks.

I'm looking forward to a great run with a friend tomorrow, and my first road bike ride of the season this week, as well!
