DC is filled with the air of spring. Kids are out and playing. New life is blooming. After a long winter, there is nothing more joyful than going outside to bask in the sun. As a mom, I am just happy to not worry about gloves, hats, and jackets for my kids when we go out. My boots are put away. I’m feeling a bit sentimental about that since I won’t be able to wear them for the next three years in Jakarta. Not that I mind a life with flip-flops, but I love boots. The forecast says it will rain tomorrow in our area (Arlington). I guess I have to cross out tomorrow for a cherry blossom viewing. I can’t wait to see cherry blossoms in DC!
