Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

This winter hasn’t been that gruesome so I really shouldn’t complain. But, this past weekend I realized I that I am over winter. It was in the 60º+ range, sunshine and birds chirping…I realized I’m sick of wearing bulky coats and wool socks. I’m ready for spring.
