Time For A Party Game!

With Spring approaching let's play "Feeling of Spring In One Word"

If your first name begins with the letter A - E describe Spring in one word beginning with the letter S. Since I'm Ann I will say "Sunny". (Please, oh please let it be sunny). Follow the chart to see which letter you will use.

A - D = S
E - H = P
I - L = R
M - P = I
Q - T = N
