The first day of spring is always exhilarating. I don’t mean the literal first day of spring, either — I mean the first day you go outside and the sun hits your face and warms it instantly, and you go for a walk and suddenly notice that there are buds on the trees and snowdrops and crocuses popping from the soil. You realize that spring is blooming all around you, and that even if cold and rainy days are still to come, we’re officially in the realm of spring.
