Spring Love

Spring is a lovely time of year and I enjoy the way the world seems to come back to life around me. It’s the time of newness. I love hat spring brings and here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Spring flowers! Of course this had to top the list because this is the sign of freshness and growth. Beautiful little flowers poking through the earth to lighten and brighten our days.
  2. Spring cleaning. Yes, weird I know but I actually like doing a deep clean of my home at this time of year. Its also hen we get outside after a long winter and start prepping our yard for the summer.
  3. Daylight savings time. I love having daylight longer. I love that there is still light out when the work day is done. I love the lightness it brings to my life.
  4. Artichokes, Asparagus & Beets – YUM! my family may not be all gung ho about these vegetables but I LOVE them and they are in abundance at this time of year. I can’t get enough of them.
  5. Warmer temperatures are starting to be part of our days. It may still be crisp and cool but the warmth of sun shines during the day and man do I love the vitamin D.
  6. Pedicure season starts! Time for some foot love opened toed shoes are beginning to make their way out of the closet.

Its a great time of year. I love the saying that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Welcome Spring!

Out my Window

As I work from home, the view out my living room window is my office view. I love being able to look out my window and see our lovely little neighborhood. Today the view out my window shows the last snowfall with the sun breaking through the trees. It’s quite lovely and serene.

Before long the freshness of spring will brighten my view and I will see colorful flowers peeking their heads out of the ground as well as the neighbors all getting active in their yards.

During the summer I love to have the windows open and get the smell of the roses by windows and the sounds of the neighborhood children laughing and playing. I love the hum of hummingbirds wings as they flitter in front of window at feeders too.

In the fall, my favorite time of year, I love to see the grey skies and the swirling smoke from the neighbor across the street’s chimney. I love the way our houses all snuggle amongst the evergreens.

There are times when I sit and stare out my window day dreaming because our neighborhood is┬áso peaceful and inviting. Outside of an ocean view I really don’t think I could ask for a better view as I work.
