i heart spring.

Tatum, of Goldsboro, N.C., looks mildly disappointed after she misses the hole for the seventh time at All-Stars Family Fun Center on the first day of spring. (Taken as a feature picture for my photojournalism class)

I love spring; the colors, the temperatures, the smells (except for the Bradford pears), the stormy skies, and the Cadbury mini eggs. But, I LOATHE the pollen...just sayin'. The pollen is at its highest density in North Carolina since 2003. With 90-degree temperatures in April and a think yellow haze in the atmosphere, I feel like I live in Los Angeles. Tatum's face is how I feel about the pollen right now. Thankfully I have Flonase, Singular & Claritin on my side!
