Why March?

from March 2011, when I had a serious thing for bracelets and we went to see the lilacs bloom at Highland Park

Because of birds chirping in the trees every morning. Because of starting to drive with the windows down. Because of the change that fresh flowers from the supermarket can bring. Because of blankets spread under the trees upon which to read. Because of dinners at our parents', catching up & making memories. Because the sun kisses my face once again. Because Saturdays at the Farmer’s Market come alive. Because of weekly bike rides around town. Because fresh fruit becomes a staple again. Because of sundresses with sweaters over them and the rare occurance of bare feet on the cool grass. Because of hope for warmer days, brighter sun, and time on the lake. Because homework can wait until another day. Because of job interviews and the hope of starting my career. Because  of  Alabama Shakes on Pandora and dance breaks in the middle of to-do lists. Because I'm learning to embrace the in-between.

more from that time we picniced amongst the lilacs in March 2011, as babies.
