Reasons To Be Excited for Spring.

(some pretty blossoms from last year)

Apparently, spring has arrived.

It happened a few days ago, but so far I'm seeing no signs of it at all! I keep seeing posts on Instagram of flowers blooming and of trees covered in blossoms, and my question is this..."Where are our flowers?". Our garden is still bare and I have huge concerns that our cherry tree isn't doing all that well. We've had so much snow over the last few weeks, and sadly, I have to say -more is on the way. The weather keeps telling me that it's going to be a white Easter, and that's not how Easter should be. I love the snow...LOVE it! But seriously, I'm done with it now. I'd love for it to feel that we're moving on in the year and stepping away from winter

So while we wait for spring to properly kick in, here are some reasons to be excited for it.

1. New wardrobes. I've never been one for spring clothes, or summer for that matter. I'm a lover of heavy knits and cosy layers, so when it comes to spring and summer, I just stick to jeans and t-shirt combinations. This year I want to change that, I want to embrace light colours and something other than jeans. Trousers, maybe even skirts? I've already started picking up a few new things, a denim skirt, paper bag linen trousers -that I wasn't sure off to begin with, but I now absolutely love!

2. Getting outside! I feel the need to move, to get out side and move my legs...walking I think they call it? Seriously though, it would be nice to have slightly better weather so the option was at least there. We've been keeping up with exercise but only indoors, and I think it's always so much easier to motivate yourself when there's a bit of sun and you can get out the house.

3. Being able to tidy the garden. In all honesty, Paul does most of the work outside. I get too creeped out with spiders. The garden has just been looking so sad lately, and I'm pretty sure some of the grass is dead now. It would just be nice to have things tidied up a little, I'd like to freshen up the furniture and add some colour with some new plants.

4. Eating a little better. We don't eat badly, with the exception of more treats than we should probably have, but it's not easy when it's still cold. You want heavy comfort meals when you get home to warm up. I'm looking forward to making lighter meals and mixing up different salads. And yes, I know there's nothing technically stopping me from doing that right now, but it's just not what I want when I'm cold.

5. Lighter evenings. Not something I thought I'd ever hear my self say, but for the last few years, I've really embraced them and now I enjoy the light nights. Especially around my birthday, on the longest day of the year it doesn't even feel as if it gets completely dark, so it's lovely to sit in the garden with blankets and enjoy the fact that you can comfortably sit outside that late in the evening.

6. Eating outside. Since moving into this house, we've fully embraced and tried to make the most of the garden. We love to spend time eating outside, being able to have breakfast in the garden is such a lovely way to start the day. And then of course, you have the BBQ's in summer...but we aren't quite there yet.
