Happy Spring?

Waking up to fresh snow on the ground is not what I was expecting on the first day of Spring. For those of us living in the Mid-West, we have been experiencing 20-30 degree weather since November. That means we have had Winter-Like weather for close to 6 months! I think seasonal depression is kicking in for a lot of us here and we are so anxious for Spring to actually begin. Looking ahead at the 10 Day forecast, there are still no signs of the weather breaking the 40 or 50 degree mark. I wonder how much longer we will have to wait.

As a way to escape the snow, my girlfriend Alyssa and I went to Fredrick Meijer Gardens to experience an indoor version of what Spring is supposed to be like. There were blooming plants and flowers all around us and butterflies in the air. The best part about it, was the green house was hot and humid and made us feel like we were somewhere tropical. I wish we were!

Here are a few photos from our adventure.
