I never really been a fan of Spring, for me it doesn’t have the heat of Summer or the beauty of Autumn or even the excitement of Winter. It has always just been the season that brings me closer to Summer. I have just never really appreciated it.
However this year, I feel like I have been awakened by Spring and I have fell a little bit in love with it.
Spring marks the end of a long cold Winter.
I felt this year Winter lasted forever! Whilst I love December and the magic of Christmas I always really struggle with January and February, I find them really cold and dark months. When March arrived I really felt a lift in my mood. I felt lighter, brighter and more optimistic.
There are Daffodils, tulips and pink blossom is everywhere you look.
People’s Instagram feeds are full of them, there are just beautiful colours and scented flowers everywhere you look. I have always loved the prettiness of Autumn but now I have stopped and took a proper look around. This time of the year is as beautiful as the other seasons.
The days are longer.
We can go the park after school for a play, we can stay out late riding bikes and meeting friends. The weather is getting warmer so we can explore more, have picnics outside without having to wrap up in coats and scarfs. Waking up to lighter mornings is so welcome after the darkness of Winter. I honestly love it all.
Spring fashion is the best.
Jackets instead of coats, shoes instead of boots. Pretty pastels and bright whites. Last Spring I was pregnant so this year I am so excited about the possibility of new clothes and experimenting with Spring fashion.
And of course Spring brings us Easter.
Now I have children Easter is a big deal! The girls just love it and me and my husband fully embrace it with plenty of Easter egg hunts, treats and crafts. Not forgetting Easter brings us a 4 day weekend. Family time is so precious to us with Meme in school and my husband working long hours now so 4 days together is such a treat.
So there you have it, Spring, a new favourite of mine.
