Spring--Season of Sex

Do you remember Bambi? I think my earliest recollection of “the birds and the bees” comes from that movie, when all the animals--even the skunk--become smitten with members of the opposite sex. And the next thing you know, there are a lot of baby animated critters running around.

What is it about spring that gets our sap flowing? The equinox isn’t until March 20th, but I’ve got to admit this writer’s feeling a bit frisky. The snow’s melting. The first green shoots are coming up close to the house. The birds are back. And suddenly I just can’t wait to write those hot scenes between Sky and Alec, the heroine and hero in my work in progress.

Somehow, with the warmer weather, my husband doesn’t seem as annoying as he did in late February, when cabin fever reached its unendurable peak in our house. In fact, I’m planning dates, spending more time with him, and he’s looking downright attractive to me. Spring’s on its way, and not a moment too soon!

So, does spring make you feel sexy? Eager to kick up your heels and sow some wild oats? What about impulsive? Anyone have wild spring break memories they want to share? Or are you more the “April is the Cruelest Month” sort? In any case, jump right in and let’s talk about spring.

Happy reading and writing!

As long as the tornados stay away, I'm happy with Spring. :-)

Even though it's still cold I really want to get a pedicure and wear some slinky open-toed sandals.

Maybe my toes feel like they've been in bondage all winter but suddenly I can't wait to gussy them up and show them off.

So I guess spring makes my toes feel sexy anyway!

I hear you--I'm dying to box up all my sweaters and get out my strappy little tank tops. It won't look out of place if I wear capris, a strappy tank and sandals on a date this weekend, right? The outfit will go great with my down coat!

Spring doesn't make me feel much of anythine--except surprised that the year has passed so quickly! I guess I'm becoming an old fogey at the ripe age of 25. *sigh*

However, I do get excited when I even glimpse the sun since it feels like we've had a Narnian winter (i.e. eternal cold weather). Summer, please come soon!
