“Spring” must be used loosely to describe the season we are currently experiencing in Northwest Iowa. We had a few warm days last week that tricked me into thinking Spring had finally arrived and was here to stay, so I planted the humble beginnings of my flower garden. Spring and Iowa must have commitment issues, because my flower bed is now covered in a nice layer of snow. As I look out the window at the melting remains of the blizzard, I have hope that warmer days are near. The forecast tells me a different story, as we’re expecting up to 6 more inches this week. I don’t know if we will actually have a Spring, but I’m hoping winter will be finished with its dramatic encores by the time May rolls around.
To convince myself that it really is Spring, I curated a spring-y Spotify playlist to listen to around the house. It’s a little chill. A little spirited. A pinch of folky, and a dash of instrumental.
I thought I’d share it here for anyone else that is still cooped up inside like me.
So if you need me, I’ll be here inside my house listening to this playlist, cleaning out all of the closets and longing for days that are warm enough to throw open the windows. Winter can’t last forever, right?
