The Light At The End of the Tunnel

Woohoo! It's spring! I check my weather app right away each morning, and I was soooooo excited to see 50 degrees and sunny in today's forecast. Imagine my surprise when I walked outside to see blizzard-like conditions. I literally stopped in my tracks, convinced the world was playing some huge joke on me.

The good news is that by 3:00 the sun was shining, the temperature was a balmy 50 degrees, and practically all that snow had melted. Well... except for the snow in my front yard because we don't face the sun so I think those snow piles will be around until June!

After the world's longest winter (I know many of you can agree), the fact that spring has, indeed, arrived was cause for a celebration! We welcomed this warm weather with my favorite summer salad (spinach, strawberries, almond slices, dried cranberries, goat cheese crumbles, and a raspberry walnut vinaigrette dressing... OMG SO GOOD!)... not that I'm pushing it or anything! ;)

Tomorrow marks the end of third quarter and only one week left until spring break. I think I can... I think I can...

Positions for next year have been officially posted. I've applied for an opening at my school and sent an email to my principal to keep me in mind. Fingers crossed!


  1. I hope you get the position! You can make it to Spring Break. Hopefully, it will be beautiful weather. Good luck!!

  2. That summer salad sounds delish! And good luck on that position you're applying for!

  3. Come on...I seriously wanted some of that salad until you said "goat.......cheese". We've discussed this....I can't. I'm glad Spring showed up this afternoon for you. If it makes you feel any's supposed to rain for four of my Spring Break days. You know what that means...rain and reading!!!! Did your principal reply? xo
