Young at Heart
The warmth is coming . . . or at least that’s what I’m going to tell myself until it actually happens! We’ve all lived in Alberta long enough to know that a glimpse of sunshine in March is most likely not the sign of an early melt. Regardless of what lies ahead, I think we all get a little excited when this time of year comes around. The thought of not having to bundle up in so many layers (and not to mention shoveling snow) is a welcome change!
Working at the fashion destination in Central Alberta, this time of year get’s me excited because I love to see all of the new styles coming out for the Spring & Summer. The vibrant colours and intriguing patterns always put a smile on my face.
But spring fashion trends aside, you know what REALLY gets me excited??? The toys! I am without a doubt a big kid at heart, and nothing gets my warm weather vibes going like walking into Toys “R” Us and sorting through the ample selection of water guns! When the water guns come out, I become a Special Forces Agent of Soaking! Water guns aside, your best bang for your buck are the new water balloons that you can fill up 50 or so with just one connection.
Sure, we might be months away from any serious water wars, but isn’t it fun to dream???
