5 minutes of february

as we moved into the month of february, i prepared myself for the long awaited arrival of winter.  it's been unusually mild this year, so i continue to brace myself for plunging temperatures and depths of snow.  february had something a little different in mind for us though, and instead has brought us the month of four seasons.  we've had bitter cold winter temperatures, blustery windy fall-like days, never ending rainy days reminiscent of spring, and then, out of nowhere, a day that felt as though summer drove up from the south and decided to make itself comfortable for awhile.

not that i'm complaining.  after spending weeks inside hiding from the wind or the rain or the cold, we were all more than happy to shed our jackets (and our shoes) and drink in the sunshine and soft breeze.

here's to spring- may it get here quickly and make itself at home :)
