The calendar informed us a few days ago that it is now spring. There really aren’t any buds on the tree branches yet and even though the weather hasn’t reflected “spring” lately, today we got a taste. It was one of those days that reminds me quickly why I love living in Madison, WI. Even though the last few months have been filled with cold winds and snowflakes, days like today make it all worthwhile. Jason and I got a chance to go on a walk around the city. We picked up some sandwiches for lunch and sat down by the still partially frozen Lake Mendota. Ok, so it was a little colder by the lake than we had hoped (40’s), but the sun helped. I don’t know what I enjoy more, the walk or the nap afterwards with the window open and warm blankets to offset the cool air…I love spring.
