We emerged slowly from our cave, rubbing our eyes and squinting up at the blazing ball of fire in the sky.  The world around us was glaring, bright white from the piles of snow still blanketing nearly everything in sight.  We stretched our limbs and breathed deeply of the cool, fresh air.  It felt so clean and exhilerating in our stale, musty lungs.  Then we heard it.  Drip... drip... drip...  As I realized what it was, a smile emerged slowly across my pallid face.  I turned to verify it's source and was elated to see it was as I thought - the ice was melting.  Finally.  After 3 months of bone-chilling torture.  And as the corner of my eye caught a tiny patch of green amidst all the white, I knew it was true - Spring was on the way!

Then we hopped in our car and headed to Target.

Hooray! I'm so glad you're feeling better! I'm so glad you got outside! And I'm so glad you saw some signs of spring! All around, hooray!

I can't even tell you how much I love that you ended this post with a trip to Target. I MISS Target!

Yay! Nothing like the bright, red bullseye to set your clipped wings (and heart) afluttering :)

I'm rooting for spring to come quickly!

You remind me of the scene (book version) in the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe when Aslan comes to Narnia and winter starts to pass. :-)
