One of my favorite days of the year doesn’t have an exact date like Christmas or my birthday. You can’t even mark it on the calendar like the 4th Thursday in November is always Thanksgiving.
No, this day varies year to year and you never know when it is coming (even though you wait and wait for it like little kids wait for Santa).
But when you step outside on that first nice day of spring without having to bundle up in a big bulky coat … aaah! THAT is a wonderful day!
The fun starts THIS WEEKEND!
