O Happy Day!

When I was a little girl, I loved Spring more than any other season. I was, however, slightly peeved about something. My birthday is March 19, and so when my third grade teacher asked for people to raise their hand to indicate the season in which they were born, it became painfully obvious that I was literally a day (or two) late. Just a day or two. Sooo disappointing to miss your favorite season. You know how much it meant to me then ( because I remember this over 20 years later), when she told me not to be sad- that I'd brought Spring with me. Wasn't that sweet? She was my favorite teacher ever ( and not just because of that!)

Fast forward a few decades....

Drumroll...

IN 2016 THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING FALLS ON MARCH 19!!!!!

Now that's a good way to celebrate your fortieth birthday. Kinda takes the sting out of it, don't ya think?
