Spring into the season with these fun suggestions on how to celebrate the warmer weather and return of greenery! Eight ways you and your family or friends can embrace the season for all it has to offer.
Ahhhhh. Spring seems to finally be in the air! I think we’re done with the snow for the season (fingers crossed at least!) and we seem to be having a pretty consistent weather pattern lately. Sure it’s not HOT by any standards (I LOVE hot weather!), but the crisp, biting cold seems to be gone from the air.
I just love spring. It’s my second favorite season after summer because it signals signs of growth, rebirth, and, like I mentioned above, the return of nicer weather. I am ALL about being outside and soaking up the sun…so of course, I need the sun to actually do that! No more of these cloudy, cold, wintry days. No thank you!
I also find that springtime helps me rediscover my passion for life! I tend to get back involved with hobbies I’ve neglected, start new projects, and rekindle old relationships that may have fallen by the wayside. All around, spring means good things for me.
If you know what’s been going on with me lately, you know I am in a need of a ‘new beginning’. I need something positive to focus on and get me out of the funk I’ve been in. I think a new season, especially one as magical and potential-filled as spring, is just the thing I need in my life to freshen it up a bit.
In honor of the nic(er) weather we’ve been having (and hopefully will continue having) and my love of the new season, I thought it would be fun to share a few ways that you can get out and CELEBRATE spring this season! Eight excellent ways to be exact. 😉
Let’s jump right into the seasonal festivities and activities!
Add some color to your wardrobe
Spring is the time to add a pop of color to your boring winter drab. Forget the neutrals and monotone colors…mimic the scenery by adding pretty pinks, bright blues, lovely lavenders, and gorgeous greens to your seasonal attire.
Go for a walk in a new place
Take in all the spring sights and sounds with stroll off the beaten path…or at least off your usual route! Take a left turn instead of a right, meet with a friend in a new area, or even drive and park somewhere to walk.
Splurge on seasonal produce
Spring is the PEAK season for produce…my favorites at least! Go to your local store or farmer’s market and pick up produce at its freshest. Think: asparagus, artichokes, beets, carrots, leeks, radishes, spinach, and MORE!
Taste a new wine
Spring is the perfect time to ditch your wintry Moscow Mule in favor of something light and fresh to pair with all the seasonal produce you’re going to buy! Right now I am loving this white Morning Fog Chardonnay from Wente Vineyards. I not only enjoy the light, crisp taste of this wine, but also the story behind the vineyard’s recent ‘For the Love of the Journey’ initiative.
Wente is a 130 year old, family-owned winery. Their signature motto is “We don’t make wine because we have to, we do it because we love to.” They believe everyone should lead life this way…in essence, doing what they love and loving what they do. They encourage their customers to share their own journey to loving life and to welcome spring as the perfect opportunity to make some positive changes. Of course, all of this is best done while sipping something of their wonderful wine! 😉 Learn more about them here.
Prep your garden for planting
Spring is the PERFECT time planning your summer vegetable or flower garden! It’s also prime time to get the ground ready. A few things you can do to prepare: tackle the weeds, clear drainage ditches, ‘top dress’ beds, add lime to the soil, and thin or remove dead foliage!
Snap some pictures of all the blooms & greenery
My second favorite thing to take pictures of aside from food? NATURE! Without a doubt. Flowers, small green buds on trees, the return of fresh grass! The world just becomes so much more photogenic again in spring.
Take your workout outdoors
Nothing better than getting your sweat on in the sunshine! Obviously I won’t be doing this right now, but you can sweat it up outside for me and I’ll join you as soon as I’m able. 🙂
Here’s to a FRESH start and blooming again in this wonderful new season! I think you’ll be able to maximize the spring for all it has to offer with these fun tips for celebrating the season. I know I’ll be taking part. Especially if it involves a glass of that Wente Vineyards wine I recommended above! 😉
Is there anything you’d add to the list to celebrate spring?
