These days you can almost feel the anticipation for Spring (and Summer) in the air.  Everyone is so done with the cold and snow, including this lady.  We're on the precipice of Spring, taunting us, but then Winter comes back with its icy bite.  But while Winter continues to chill our bones I am hopeful and ever looking at the forecast towards warmer days in the future.  So, in a hope to stay hopeful and will Spring and Summer to get here soon here's a list of the top 5 things I am most looking forward to in the coming months.

1.)  Our trip to Olympic National Park and Seattle at the end of May.  I love traveling and I've loved everywhere we've gone, but I've been looking forward to this trip more than any other.  I can't wait!

2.) Flowers.  It's no secret that I love taking pictures of pretty flowers.  I can't wait for the magnolias and cherry blossoms to start blooming in Spring Grove.  And the tulips and daffodils that are scattered around the city.  And, hopefully, the peonies I planted last year in my garden!

 3.)  Weekend trips to Findlay Market to get produce, brats for grilling and tasty gelato.

4.) Midpoint Music Festival.  I went for the first time last year and had such a wonderful time.  This year Antoine is going with me and my best friend and her boyfriend are coming down from Cleveland to join in on the fun...for the entire weekend!  It's going to be a blast!

5.) Being outside!  Going for walks, riding our bikes, grilling out, camping, going to a Red's game or two...all those fun things that come with Spring/Summer that just relax you and make you feel happy inside.

Have you been dreaming of Spring and Summer too?  What things are you looking forward to the most?


  1. Ha! Hahahahaha! Ha! I was apparently on the exact same wavelength as you this morning because I wrote about the same thing. Only my post was much more depressing and less colorful.

    The thing I am looking forward to the most is not feeling trapped in the house. Also, gardening. :)

    1. Haha! It's weird, for some reason you're in my list of followers in Feedly, but your posts aren't showing up on my feed. Grr!!

      And...getting to hang out with your hlp more!?! I'm more exciting than gardening! I think...
