Happy Spring!

In case you weren't aware, yesterday was the first day of spring. 

I have a few suggestions for what you can do to get yourself in the mood for spring- in case the warmer and beautiful weather isn't doing it for you.

2. Take a stroll or bike ride around your neighborhood or a local park.
Bringing your pet is encouraged!
3. If you are in the DC area, plan a trip to see the cherry blossoms at the tidal basin!
This is on my list of things to do soon.
4. Head to your local farmer's market and stock up on fresh in-season fruits and vegetables.
According to, some of my favorites such as asparagus, pineapple, strawberries, butter lettuce, spinach, and oranges are all in season during spring.

5. Get in gear for spring cleaning. Or at least organize something that's been bothering you lately.
I cleaned and reorganized a couple of my kitchen drawers last week and I feel so much better about it. Now everything is where I think it is and it's all clean and fresh!

6. Buy yourself something new that says "spring" to you!
I love this ring that I found on etsy. It's adjustable, so it should fit most ring sizes, and it is a bargain at $18. Plus the fact that its an etsy find guarantees that nobody in your classes or at work will have anything like it! 

What ideas do you have to get ready for the new season?
