Spring is in the air...

Our forsythia bushes are popping out their yellow buds. The cherry trees are splendidly pink. Even my daffodils are beginning to bloom.

Spring is on its way! I am ready to welcome it with open arms. Spring brings me a new outlook and refreshes my spirit. Colors begin to appear overnight; our browns and grays are transformed into fresh greens, yellows, pinks, and whites. The sun burns the clouds away so we may enjoy the wide bright blue skies.

Our winter was longer, icier, and even more "blah" than usual. So, I am poised to make the best out of this upcoming glorious season:

BalancingMama's Top 10 "Must-Haves" for Spring:
(1) Freshly painted toenails
(2) Flip-flops
(3) Homemade lemonade
(4) Comfy outdoor chairs
(5) A favorite park
(6) A cute and colorful umbrella (to brighten the rainy days)
(7) Neighbors to share a hello and a wave
(8) Open sunroof + a clean car
(9) Fresh in-season fruit
(10) A quaint neighborhood ice cream shop

Enjoy the season!

I absolutely LOVE the colors of spring! It's one of the things I'm liking about the South, early spring! I have to agree with you list too, especially the ice cream shop (I know my priorities) and the clean car (do you know any car cleaning fairies?).

Neighbors are key. My son loves to play with the boy next door.
