Seasonal Transitioning

June 4, 2013

I love the buds and colors that emerge in Spring. But as the season fades into the next, I can't help but feel a little sad when those pastel blooms slowly turn into green leaves. Even then, I love the fresh look of the landscape and its drastic transformation from a barren brown to a brillant green. The mountains take on new look, like they've taken in a deep breath and their rolling hills are full of life once again. It's remarkable how this transition from winter to spring, spring to summer, and summer to fall comes every year in its own timing. I'm always amazed at the beauty, feeling as though I'm seeing the season in a way I have never before. And I can say the same about this go round. Spring has been a beauty and although I'm sad to see her come to a close, I have open arms to embrace summer with. There's something about the months of June, July, and August that evoke a childlike giddiness in me. There are long nights, excuses to jump in a pool, tan lines, freckled noses & shoulders, juicy fruits (watermelon, cantaloupe, & pineapple), the constant scent of sunscreen floating in the air, get-togethers over a fire pit or on a back deck, open windows, lightning bugs, etc. Truly, I could go on and on about the greatness of the summer months; I have to admit, I have high hopes and expectations for this quickly approaching season. It's the last season of wedding preparation until fall delivers my wedding date and there will be changes & growth in my life and relationships. I am excited to dive into the abyss of summer and surround myself with its delights!
