Ah…The Majesty of Spring!

As summer approaches, this Katy mom knows how to plan

As the chill of winter melts into spring, there seems to be a certain feeling of excitement in the air.  Color emerges from every yard as the grass turns green and the trees and shrubs blossom with new growth.  Families can be seen working in their yards- trimming bushes, clearing fallen leaves, spreading mulch, planting flowers- creating a natural work of art.  Flowers fill the medians as care is taken to beautifully adorn the city of Katy. 

Yes, spring has arrived.  Cool breezes float gently into homes as air conditioning is postponed for a brief time.  We have the desire to sort closets, clean out the garage, dust the blinds, and get rid of some of the clutter.  The inside, as well as the outside of our homes, emerges, new and improved.  Birds sing happily and create a symphony of melodious harmony, and we try to savor every last minute of the cool, temperate weather.

What is it about spring that gives us the desire to create, explore, renew and prioritize?  Is it the warmer weather?  Is it the knowledge that summer is around the corner?  Is there something in the air that motivates us?  Well, frankly, I don’t know what it is, but there is something magical about spring that causes us to act.  It is a time to pause, take note of all the beautiful and sublime, and then work to make things better.

So, while we have the added energy to clean, sort, and decorate, let us also take time to prioritize the fun activities that we can enjoy in the spring.  It is a great time to take the children to the park, go for a bike ride, take a family walk, pack a picnic lunch, plan a barbeque with the neighbors, shop at an outdoor shopping center, and visit the zoo (just to name a few).    

Happy Spring to all!  I will be looking at your beautiful yards as I drive around town and will be admiring the beautiful city of Katy in all of its spring glory!
