Really, I could not have loved it more.
Saturday I was feeling kinda down to start, but then my friend called and invited Lola and I to join her and her pups at the dog park.
At first I was pretty nervous, since Lola has never been before and I've never had her off leash, but within just a few minutes of arriving I realized I had underestimated my little pup once again.

Being outside and seeing my pup happy really gave me a lift, and that carried over to Sunday as well. I made pancakes, did a bunch of laundry, hung out with a friend, took Lola for a long walk around our neighborhood and even gave her a little bath when she came back from her walk. After her bath she fell asleep all swaddled up in towels and blankets, right in my arms. It was the best day.
There's something just so magical about spring and the thaw that not only melts the snow and ice but softens our hearts and quickens our steps. Spending time outside was very renewing for me, special. I can't wait to spend many many Saturday afternoons at the puppy park with Lola and her pals soaking in the sun and camaraderie that abounds there.
