Dear Spring Break,
You officially started on Saturday, but I could not celebrate your arrival fully until today, my first actual weekday staying home. I am now looking squarely at the next 7 days, contemplating all that you might have for me.
Bring me later, more relaxed evenings with no pressure to be asleep by 9:30.
Bring me relaxed mornings, with at least one extra cup of coffee that I actually finish instead of pouring down the drain in haste on my way out the door.
Bring me time to make my winter-to-spring wardrobe transition, and the brave I need to weed out pieces from both seasons. If it doesn’t bring me true joy, it has to go.
Bring me time to prepare for my month of poetry instruction with my kinders. I am so eager to launch them into being poets!
Bring me opportunities to take hikes with the dogs.
Bring me a fun night of cooking Indian food and eating together with family and friends.
Bring me time with my daughters to shop, eat out, see a movie, or any other outing that calls.
Bring me a day to snowshoe with my husband. Spring on the mountain is glorious!
Bring me refreshment and restoration to my teacher soul to prepare me for the rapid close to this school year that will happen before my very eyes.
Are you on spring break? Is it around the corner, perhaps? What do you want spring break to bring you this year?
