If you look outside your window right now, you'll see piles of snow and you can just feel the frigid air seeping through your front door and windows. At this point, it doesn't feel like spring is coming any time soon but it's actually just several short weeks away! 

If you're trying to get yourself out of the winter blues the best thing to do is to start planning all of the fun things you want to do when the weather heats up and the flowers begin to bloom again.
