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.
More time outside
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.
The world in bloom
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.
