I have to say this is one of my favorite times of year. Even though it's still bitterly cold in Ohio, the sunshine is so refreshing. Knowing that spring is right around the corner is really uplifting and motivating for me, especially because I finally feel like I have some energy after months of hibernation. I'm feeling the itch to get outside (this will fade quickly, haha) and get out of the winter rut.
If you're also experiencing a bad case of spring fever, I've got a list of some of the best events this month to get you up and out!
