You're probably wondering what in the world this good news could be. I mean, we have a big winter storm coming to smack us in the face later this week. Just when we thought spring might be coming... Let's be honest, that was fake spring. I'll put my breakdown of the phases of a Minnesota spring later in this post.

Yes, Daylight Saving Time is coming up on Sunday. But that's not my good news. I suppose Daylight Saving Time is good and bad news because that means we're one step closer to spring but it also totally screws with our sleep schedule.


The exciting news is... the sun is setting after 6 PM finally!!

It sounds kind of silly but when the sun starts to set at a reasonable time in our neck of the woods it's very exciting. I remember when my husband and I got married at the end of December a few years ago, we needed to take all of our pictures before the ceremony because the sunset was around 4:30 or something like that. Yeah.

I actually figured out this good news thanks to our friends over at Kwik Trip.

So shout out to them, thanks for spreading that positivity around! I'm looking forward to the days getting longer and longer. I'm so over winter.
