To be honest, it kind of stopped being excited. Although it still cracked me up that my friends there would get all excited about rainy days, kinda like myself and the New Englanders would pine away for sunny/warm days. I never really fully understood wanting it to rain, but since moving back to Massachusetts I still yearn for the days when winter turns to spring. I actually, ok, almost, enjoy the Winter just because of how happy I become/how much the world comes alive again once Spring comes. It might just be the happiest time of year.... wellll, maybe it can't quite beat out beach days, but a close second, definitely.
Here are some signs of Spring in my neighborhood:
You get to take walks in the woods like this.
Your puppy spends all day like this.
You play lots of backyard games like this. (The boyfriend loves to build his own games, haha)
