Hello Spring! 5 Things We’re Looking Forward To

With the official start of spring it’s time to start thinking sunny thoughts. Thoughts that make us feel warm all over even though it’s only 45 degrees outside. So here are five things we’re looking forward to – five things that make us run for the sunblock. What’s your five?

  1. Flower Blooms – It may sound silly but I love seeing all the greenery come back. The trees, the grass and especially the flowers. It just brings a little joy to my heart. Maybe I have my mom’s green thumb after all.
  2. Spring Trips – I have a soft spot for long-ago spring family trips. It was a week off from school and, if we were lucky, a trip out of town. If we were really lucky, Disney World! Even now I’m fond of spring trips and this year I’ll be taking a few days to celebrate my grandmother’s 80th birthday.
  3. Outdoor BBQs – I can taste it right now. Corn on the cob, BBQ’d chicken and fresh squeezed lemonade. A meal outdoors with friends and family is one of life’s great treats.
  4. Sandals and Flip Flops – I’m partial to flip flops, maybe you’re more of a sandal person. Whichever you choose it’s nice to free the feet from the combines of socks and winter boots.
  5. Memorial Day on Block Island – While the island is open year round and I highly, highly recommended a shoulder season trip (Spring or Fall), Memorial Day is often considered the start of the season and a great time to discover Block Island. Full ferries, bustling streets, and miles and miles of beaches await…time to put my toes in the sand.

I must admit I do enjoy Winter – skiing is a favorite pastime – but warm weather can’t get here soon enough. I’ll pull on the shorts, slip on the flip flops, slap on the sunscreen, and make my way to the beach…
