You guys – spring is so close, I can almost taste it. Admittedly, January-May are my least favorite months of the year, but there is something undeniably hopeful about spring. I have a vivid memory of being a sophomore in high school. It was spring in the suburbs of Illinois, and Mike and I weren’t dating, but we were texting non-stop. To prepare for spring, my mom took me shopping – first to Kohl’s and then to Ulta – and she bought me some new Capri’s (back when Capri’s were a thing??), and some button-up short sleeve shirts because 50 degrees in Chicago means it’s time to pack up the sweaters.
After Kohl’s, we went to Ulta, and I raided the sale section. Ulta had amazing sale bins back in the day. My mom bought me Jessica Simpson’s glitter body powder (because, 90’s baby), and a bunch of other goodies.
I got to school the next day, dressed to the nine’s in my hot new denim Capri’s and wearing mascara for once. My locker was right next to Mike’s (destiny??), and as soon as he saw me, he complimented me. I’ll never forget that feeling. His validating my efforts stirred up all of the hope inside of me that maybe – just maybe – he liked me too (because the hours of texting didn’t answer that). I’ll forever associate spring with Kohl’s Capri’s, drug store mascara, and the hope of what’s to come.
