(photo from the hot air balloon race that flew over our house last summer)
On the long (cold) drive back from Detroit this weekend, the conversation inevitably turned to how we can't wait for spring.
Monday, while cooking veggie chili with Katie Jean, we got to talking about all of things we can't wait to do this spring/summer.
It never fails. Every winter, about mid-way through the season, we get 'the itch'. Some people say 'cabin fever'...but I think 'the itch' sounds sinister and funny.
food cooked on a grill
warm breezes (as apposed to the razor blade laced wind gusts we have now)
walking the dog (farther than around the block)
walking to the produce stand down the street
dining al fresco
cannon balls into the pool
sun kissed faces
thunderstorms (even though I get spooked)
open sunroofs and windows down while driving
drinks with umbrellas in them (I know I can have it now, but it seems wrong)
falling asleep in the sun

But it gets worse.
It's not that I haven't been drinking tea....I've been lured away from my sweet new teapot by a saucy temptress of a coffee/tea shop around the corner from my house. Their vanilla lattes and earl grey lattes are making me forget myself!
Dear Little Teapot,
I promise to overcome the spell Hubbs has put on me and put you to use.
Until then, you sure do look pretty on my shelf.

1 to 1.5 hours later we have moved the party to the couch.
We are sitting, but as you can see....still loving life.
Roughly 2 hours after the ball has dropped.
Tilda is clearly very disappointed in our party pooper ways.
