spring cleaning…

It’s beautiful outside today…and we’re climbing to the mid-50’s, so spring fever is in full force!

Here are some things I’m looking forward to:

-Spring cleaning – I could never fully understand this concept growing up…I mean, weren’t you supposed to keep things clean year round? Now, I get it. I’m reminded of a Disney movie scene where cartoon animals are helping the heroine tidy up the house…I wish!
While I’m pretty sure cute bunnies won’t be on hand to assist me, I’m looking forward to throwing open the windows and doors while the attic fan is running. I’m looking forward to wiping down baseboards and shining the windows. I will also be tweaking the decor to welcome in some of that color that’s blooming outdoors. Fresh flowers are definitely a must. Somehow spring just makes you want everything around you to feel fresh and new!

– Gardening – Ok, so I admit it…I don’t have the greenest of thumbs. But, thanks to my inspiring sister-in-law, Stephanie, I really fell in love with trying to brighten the landscape and watching things grow last year. I can’t wait to get out there over the next few weeks to clear and plant, before the backyard turns into a jungle!

– Flip flops! – My love for spring/summer/fall fashion is not relegated to flip flops alone, but they are symbolic of all that is wonderful about warm weather fashion! I’m dying to de-layer and wear lighter fabrics. I can’t wait to paint my toes bright pink, live in vibrant colors and classic cuts.

It’s safe to say that I, for one, can’t wait for the frost to thaw and the first green bud to appear! Soon…very soon! 🙂
