it's raining, it's pouring,

The 2012 Maryland winter was been as mild as they come. It's been lovely for a summer-lover like me who can't wait for shorts and sandals, because there have been days this summer where I WORE SHORTS. The "Snowmaggedon" Blizzard shut down the entire government two years ago. I wanted to cry multiple times, mostly when I was falling into waist-high snow at night after slipping on ice. But you know what mild winters remind me of (besides safety, hope and eternal sunshine?) SPRING! It's right around the corner, I get more excited every day, spring is near! Sound the alarms! Rejoice in the streets!

PATTERNED RAIN BOOTS? Be still my covetous heart.
