the spring list

it is officially SPRING! 
this is the moment I have been waiting for, and for a long time.
so today's post is dedicated to all that I am, and have been, excited for:

 boxes of baby plants ready to be potted and watered.
bags of whoppers easter eggs
 my birthday! (april!)
that hint of excitement once the days get longer.
 wearing light scarves over a long sleeved cotton tee.

sitting to eat al fresco for the first time in months!
shedding the coat for the first time, even if it is a little premature...
fresh buds on the trees!
the smell of hyacinths...intoxicating.

magnolia blooms.
seeing the trees that line the streets turning green.
morning coffee dates
reese's eggs.

making summer plans.
visiting the tree in the park with S. :)
painting outside on a first warm day.
lunch dates in the city.

flea markets.
 walking outside with coffee in hand.
noticing it gets dark a little bit later... :)
brunch + shopping afternoons.

what are you excited for? what makes spring spring for you?
ciao! xo

  2. I love this!! This makes me even more excited for spring. What kinds of plants are you planting?!

  3. Beautifully written! I love spring, too. I'm looking forward to fresh, pretty flowers at the farmers markets. And definitely lighter evenings!

  4. Yes to all of these!
    I also love having bonfires in our backyard, the croaking of the frogs behind our house, peacocks prancing about with their beautiful tails on display, and groups of ducks running about, searching for the best hiding places for their eggs.

  5. Pretty pics. I love so many things about spring! The plants coming back to life the smell of fresh mowed lawns, listening to the birds sing early in the morning. : )


  6. Gorgeous photos! And I'm just ready to feel the warm sun on my skin!! Cannot wait!!
