5 Reasons Why I Love Spring
5 reasons I love Spring:
Four: Once the salt trucks are tucked away for the rest of the year, it safe for the classic car community to emerge from their winter garages. Four years ago, I adopted my local Alexandria Cars & Coffee club and Spring is the when they start their weekend meet up season. Of course with this season sometimes comes Spring showers but they've been known to display their cars for a good cause despite the downpour. In 2016, I photographed a classic car show in the rain for three hours to help raise money for the local high school graduation class.

Three: my third favorite thing about Spring is the multitude of beautiful flowers that just scream Spring. Like Tulips, Daffodils, Magnolias and Dogwood. I'm lucky to actually have all of those blooming in my own yard. Of course my two family members with Spring allergies may beg to differ!
Two: coming in second place is spending time with family on Spring Break! As my sons get older, we seem to be spending more time visiting college campuses, but it's still quality family time.
One: and the number one reason I love Spring is.....freeing the Harley! (Bet you weren't expecting that!)
