Celebrate Spring

7 Apr

Spring is one of my favorite times of year. It’s an indication that Summer (my favorite time of year) is just around the corner! Although, today is cool and dreary in Denver, there have been more than a few Spring days and here is proof:

This daffodil is the first sign of Spring at our house. The recent cold days have caused the petals to wilt around the edges:( but I’m sure it will be revived once the 70 degree weather returns.

The cherry blossoms that line our street are also in full bloom. These trees are one of the many reasons I love our place.

Our neighbors Aaron Jones and Laura Grandis, planted some really pretty purple flowers so I had to take a photo. They are turning into quite the gardeners:) I have to admit I’m pretty jealous of their amazing vegetable and herb gardens in the backyard! Hopefully one day we’ll get around to beautifying our yard.

Here are a few reasons to celebrate the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring:

1. Flowers and green grass

2. Shorts and Sundresses

3. More daylight hours for running, of course

4. Patios and sunbathing

5. Rooftop happy hours and the return of Bud Light lime:)

6. Baseball

7. Volleyball or Scrabble in the park

8. 70+ degree weather and warm breezes

9. Not having to wear layers of clothes to work

10. Aviator sunglasses

I’m interested to see if there are any other reasons you’re excited about Spring? I’d like to hear them:)

    The sounds of birds chirping and nesting, as well as children at play
    always remind me of Spring!

    Happy Spring from sunny California!

      I agree Theresa! We awoke to birds chirping a couple weeks ago and it was a refreshing surprise. I’m so excited to see you all this Summer!
