I don't want to sugar coat it. Spring is my favorite season. It's that sweet spot between bulky coats and bathing my whole body in sunscreen. There's just lots of great reasons to celebrate.
Why do you love spring - or prefer another season? Tell us and you'll be entered to win a foldable Fire Pit - so you can enjoy relaxing outside any evening of the year. Plus, this version even comes with a carrying case so it's great for tailgating, camping, or just hanging out in the yard.
I moan over losing that extra hour during Daylight Savings Time, but when it's still bright outside after dinner, it feels like a blessing. The weather is great for long walks, bike riding, playing with the kids, or my favorite - relaxing outside with dinner and a drink.
Flowers are finally out of hibernation and everything is blossoming. I love to get my hands dirty and feel the satisfaction of spending time outside in my garden. But even if you don't like to dig in the ground, it's hard not to smile when you drive down the street and see buds coming up, bushes turning color, or even fresh-cut bouquets in a store window.
Good-bye wool hats and mittens. Hello to throwing on a light sweater over flowy dresses or jeans with a cute tee. It's time to switch out the closet and get rid of everything bulky.
No, the cleaning part doesn't excite me, but now that I can open the windows wide, I'm finding my inner Marie Kondo and making the house feel a little more full of joy.
It's time to head out for delicious produce at Farmer's Markets and Strawberry Festivals. Or to enjoy the taste of spring all year long, plant an herb garden. You can buy the plants at your neighborhood garden store, and keep them inside or out. Cut the herbs off as needed, and sprinkle them on whatever you cook for months. Easy peasy and delicious.

I love working outside in the garden in the Spring and FINALLY getting into the pool since I've turned into a wimpy Floridian who won't jump in the water in winter.
I love Spring, it is my most favorite time of the year. I love the newness it brings to the world. The grass is green, the weather is warm and clear, flowers spring up, baby animals are born. Its just a wonderful time of year and a wonderful time for people to get outdoors and enjoy nature.
I love Spring for the longer daylight hours and warmer temperatures than Winter but cooler temperatures than Summer.
I love when my lilacs bloom and my flowers start coming up! Everything is so pretty and green!
I LOVE spring because I get to see my flowers come up and figure out new ones to buy and plant. I also like the warmer temps and the sunshine!
Bluebonnets in Texas!
I love gardening. It's so peaceful & watching things grow is so much fun.
Oh the weather is awesome I'm the Spring! Warmer weather and crazy storms!! I love going outside during a good storm!! I love the bonfires and hoodies at night and the awesome company and conversation we have while taking advantage of the beautiful weather
I love that everything is blossoming especially the trees. I love that we can be outdoors more and the weather is perfect!
My birthday is in May! I love to see everything blooming and coming to life! I love to get outside and enjoy the longer daylight hours with my family and my six dogs!!!
Spring is the beginning of blooms and the return of color! I always look forward to planting flowers, garden, and opening up windows!
I love the usual transition between winter and spring. Of course this year is all over the place and those of us living in the south are confused and never know what to wear anymore!
I love the warm weather!
I love when the weather turns warmer and the flowers blooming.
My favorite seasons are spring and summer. I love the warmer days, everything around you is blooming and growing, days are longer so you can stay up enjoying family or go on a walk after dinner. It's like every year there's this sense or a fresh start when the flowers start blooming and birds start chirping away. I always feel like there's so many possibilities to the summer and spring!
