spring is upon us!

(Here Comes the Sun..I thought it very fitting...)

This past weekend was the first time in months where I was able to really feel the glorious heat of the sun. I went most of the weekend barefoot, preparing my first ever garden (many more posts to come about gardening!).

I love seeing things coming to life around me. This winter has been especially difficult for me, dealing with the cold and dreary weather. So this spring, more than any other, seems extra special to me. I can't stop smiling at the trees coming into bloom, the birds chirping, the rain washing away the dreary memories of winter, and the sun bringing warmth and rejuvenation to my body and soul.

There are so many things I want to do to take advantage of this beautiful weather. I want to take long bike rides, have picnics, go on evening walks to the coffee shop, read outside on a blanket, walk barefoot as much as possible and dig my feet into the soil. I want to pick flowers and keep the windows open in the house, letting the cool spring air fill my lungs. I want to make bonfires and stay out in the cool night air as long as possible.

rejuvenation has never felt so great....

P.S. keep your eyes peeled for an outfit post soon to come!
