5 Reasons to Look Forward to Spring

5 Reasons to Look Forward to Spring and 2 Reasons to Dread It

I don't know about you guys, but I am counting down the days until Spring officially arrives. I can't wait to kick off my shoes and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Here are a few reasons why Spring rocks and a couple of reminders why we should cherish the few short-days of Winter we have left.

  • New motivation: I'm impressed if you're still going strong with your New Year's resolutions. But most of us lose steam right about now. The new season puts a little spring in our step, prompting us to de-clutter our homes, hit the gym before bathing suit season arrives, or start saving money for a vacation.
  • Color: It's back, whether in your wardrobe, a bouquet of fresh flowers, or on your toenails.
  • Longer days: It brings me so much happiness to leave the office before it's dark, and on the weekends we'll soon have more time to barbecue or eat outside.
  • New food: Bring on the apricots, asparagus, and artichokes! See ya next Winter apples.
  • Feeling sexier: While you might miss fashionable boots and coats, nothing's flirtier than a Spring dress.

So what makes me dread saying goodbye to Winter?

  • No more cozy: It's time to say goodbye to bundling up in a luxuriously comfy scarf before leaving the house, or spending Saturdays watching movies in sweats guilt-free.
  • Allergies: Warmer weather doesn't come free. For those of us who suffer allergies, we must face watery eyes, sneezing, and an itchy throat. Now is the time to stock up on meds.

What are you looking forward to?

Yes to: extra hiking, my freckles perking up, my birthday, Cadbury cream eggs, opening my sun roof while driving, getting into lighter & brighter clothes, bunny rabbits, the sounds of wildlife coming out (like birds chirping in the morning and frogs ribbiting at night), and seeing everything start turning green or blooming blossoms. No to: actually having to shave regularly (sometimes it's nice slacking off and being able to take 5 minute showers for a week ;)), unpredictable Nevada spring weather (70 one day and snowing the next)

The beach, the sea and generally wearing a lot less clothes! It has been a long winter. Sadly at the moment I am still very wrapped up. I feel my legs are shouting "let me out"!

Let's see...I'm happy about longer days. I tend to randomly fall asleep so it would help to have longer days. More sun, NO SNOW, and lots of color!!!

I'm so excited for spring. I'm looking forward to exploring the heck out of New England (mostly the Boston area) this spring and summer - walking the freedom trail again, visiting Lexington and Concord, the John Adams house (which I was disappointed to find out a couple of weeks ago when I wanted to visit, that it's closed until April), maybe making a trip out to Cape Cod... I'm excited for open windows and planting flowers and a vegetable garden, for sunshine and more hours of daylight. I'm excited for getting a new fence around our backyard and then getting a puppy, and for backyard barbeques and opening up our pool and then getting to take swims after work. And for breaking out my skirts and dresses!

Hello sandals. Hello driving through the parkway blasting the stereo with the windows down. Hello sexy revealing clothes. Hello going to concerts every other weekend and not having to lug around a coat. Hello birdwatching and gardening and camping. Goodbye snow though! I absolutely love all seasons equally, I'm always sad to see it go.

I'm looking to wearing Spring fashion clothes. I like the cute, flirty styles. Also, I look forward to putting in new plants for landscaping. I think it would really beautify our home. As far as dreading Spring, I would miss my Winter wardrobe (I love clothes from all season). I'm going to miss my boots, cashmere scarf, and mittens.
