Spring Memories

Melissa Gibson

Spring is my second favorite time of year; fall is my first. I love all the blooming flowers and having the windows; being able to run out of the house without 72 sweaters, a coat that make you look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters and the gloves and/or hat you will loose the minute you step outside.

I wear the same fragrances throughout the year; I will wear anything with vanilla even if it's a thousand degrees out. However, I do have scent that is my spring scent, lilac. Lilacs are my favorite flower; they make me smile every time I see them. Part of that is simply because I love the way they smell and the second part is when I was 13, our family adopted the most amazing dog, Teddy. He was my "heart" dog and my best friend for many years. In his golden years, we lived around the corner from a house that grew lilac bushes in front of their house. Teddy loved lilacs; he would stop and smell those flowers for at least ten minutes whenever we passed that house. To this day, whenever I smell lilacs, I think of him and smile.

What does spring remind you of?

Until next time,
