Though spring is a time of rebirth for everyone, for Chicagoans it feels almost biblical. The first moment we shed our wool coats and let the sunlight finally touch our skin feels so profoundly cleansing. And walking through a fresh spring garden, bathing in the sun as you go, is perhaps one of the most poetic feelings I know.

See — for all the brutal temperatures we have here, for all the frost, all the snow, all the “Chiberia” jokes/complaints, we know what incredible beauty awaits us come spring. I often say spring in the Midwest is one of the most magical times (though autumn in a pumpkin patch is a close second). Every flower imaginable is in bloom and animals come out of hibernation, newly invigorated and ready for fresh adventures.

Spring is a time for reinvention, reinvigoration and rediscovery. A time to forgive the harsh days of winter and just enjoy the brilliant rays of sunshine. Preferably in the most poetic dress you own!
