Solar Powered

Ya'll. I am convinced that I am solar powered. 

The weather has been warming up and we have started to have more sunny days, and I just feel like a new person! My mood had definitely shifted, and I am SO excited that Spring is here. Which means we're that much closer to most favorite season :)

Everyone who knows me, knows that I get cold easily. I would MUCH rather it be 100 degrees outside than below 50 {don't laugh...I'm a Texas girl born and raised}. Most people hate the high temperatures, but I soak up every. single. second. Those dog days of August and record-breaking temps? Bring them on! 

Even when it's cold, I can handle it a little better if the sun is out. The sun makes ALL the difference to me. It's probably all in my head, but if the sun is out, my brain thinks it's warmer than it is. And the sunshine just makes me feel happy and content. There's nothing better than the feeling of the sun's warmth on my skin. 

I don't necessarily get depressed during the winter months, but I also don't realize how much the cold and cloudy months affect me until they're gone. It's almost like a thin veil or a weight is lifted. I just feel so much more alive and energetic when the sun comes out! And I'm sure my husband can attest that I am a less crabby person in the warmer months. Maybe it is a mild case of Seasonal Affective Disorder {SAD}. Whatever it is, I just feel better when the sun is shining :)

Even now I am counting down the minutes until I can be outside in the sun...


  1. Ditto on every single thing you said. Whenever I read about the new heavens and earth not needing a sun because of Jesus...I can't wait for that.

  2. You are your mama's daughter! I love the sun too! I thought I was close to being a sun worshiper but love your description better - solar powered!! Love you my precious daughter!
