Putting Away the Jacket


I didn’t do a great job of putting away my jacket in this photo, but it is away–and yes, my mirrors need cleaning.

Yesterday I went to work without a jacket. Perhaps this wasn’t the first day that I went without a jacket–I am pretty sure that I have left it in the car or not taken it because I was going to be in a warm car—but it definitely was the first day that I went to work (and was on public transport) without a jacket.

And it was GLORIOUS.

My winter jacket, often described as not a proper winter jacket, isn’t particularly heavy or cumbersome. Without something fleecy underneath, it doesn’t even really keep me very warm.  I don’t think of it as weight, but when I didn’t have to wear it yesterday, I realized that it must have weighed a million pounds.

Such freedom is easily Today’s Perfect Moment.

What has been your Perfect Moment of spring so far?
