My Spring Bucket List

Image from Midwest Living

Good morning! As I type the wind is howling, the eves are creaking, it is raining and there is snow on the way bringing the cold along with it. Sunday I was outside with shorts and a t-shirt today if I leave the house I will be bundled up in my down jacket with a scarf and mittens. 

My mind is focused on the bright days of Spring, the season of renewal and new possibilities. This season I am looking forward to savoring the little things. 

1. Opening the windows and letting the crisp cool air in to chase the stale winter air out. 

2. Going to the nursery to pick flowers for my containers.

3. Visiting the farmers market and tasting the first strawberries of the season. 

4. Planting an herb garden. 

5. Enjoying the first walk on the beach this year where I won't freeze my toes. 

6. Easter, mass, the eggs, dinner and the bunny. 

7. Exploring a new place to walk, hike and relax. 

8.  6 week bootcamp. 

9. Take a "spring break."

10. Host a dinner for friends to welcome the new season. 

Do you have a bucket list for Spring or do you just wing it and enjoy what life has to offer in the moment? Whatever the case I hope that you slow down and enjoy your family, friends and experiences. Life is unpredictable and uncertain so make the most of it. 

Happy day and happy Spring.

Happy Spring

Good morning.  Happy first day of Spring! It is cold, rainy, windy and there is a possibility of snow on the way so it doesn't feel or look too much like spring today. That's ok though because I have a spring in my step and sunshine on my mind. 

I hope that you have a great day!

Good morning! Happy Spring! Did you have a good weekend? Did you enjoy St.Patrick's day? I skipped the Irish celebrations and stayed home Saturday. Sunday I was busy Spring cleaning. I had not planned that but woke up with the sun streaming in and suddenly saw everything in a new light. 

I am ready for Spring, ready for sunny days and cool nights to sleep with the windows open for at least a month or two before the humidity sets in. I am ready for lighter clothes, long walks, bright flowers, chirping birds at my window in the morning and all that comes with Spring. 

I always say this at the holidays but I love Williams Sonoma, I love their tablescapes and holiday decor. Spring garden is just that, elements of your garden including flowers, birds and of course bunnies. I think this beautiful set would look great for spring, Easter and beyond. 

These colorful plates, napkins and more would look beautiful on any table. I personally love the white tablecloth and dishes with just the colorful salad plates. Add a centerpiece and your colored eggs and you have the perfect Easter table.

You could skip the dishes all together and add a touch of Spring to your table with just the linens. The botanical prints look like works of art. 

Here are a few of my favorite pieces. If you click the link it will take you to the Williams Sonoma website where most of the pieces are 20% off. Note if you click the link I will make a few cents as it is an affiliate link.
