RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER + A LITTLE SPRING GIVEAWAY
Last weekend, we were trapped inside again from the weather, so I decided to make a fruity drink, turn on the Bob Marley, and pretend I was on a beach somewhere. I made the Lakeside Cooler I shared the recipe for last year, and it did just the trick. I love how a song or certain drink can transfer you to some place else.
When we went to Jamaica on our honeymoon years ago, they had Bob Marley playing everywhere, all the time. I remember thinking how annoyed the resort workers must be having to hear the same songs over and over. But every time I hear "Buffalo Soldier" come on the radio, even when I'm driving through 4 inches of snow and 2 layers of ice, I can almost smell the sunscreen and salty air.
As if to tell me not to fear, that spring is on its way, the little clovers I planted last week have started to sprout.
It may have been a mixture of my fruity drink and seeing the clover start to grow, but I now have the feeling that spring is right around the corner.
Do you have that same feeling that warm weather is fast approaching? Have any trees or flowers started blooming where you are?
