I am in the honeymoon stage of spring. In the sense that when I walk out the door in the morning, the warm and comforting breeze is surprising and new to me. My mind and muscles, still trained to brace for the great outdoors, tense as they know they'll have to work hard to keep my extremities warm and my thoughts hopeful.
As of late, they relax as I take a deep breathe of warm air and realize they won't have to work so hard for the next few months.
Taking advantage of this still-surprising warm has come easy. Walking around my Chicago neighborhood and admiring landscaping and architecture could keep me occupied for hours.
