10 Things I Love About Spring

As of today I can officially say Happy Spring!!

Many of my recent posts have been about the arrival of spring. From some of my Fabulous Friday Finds posts, to my posts about my Little Birdie Cupcake Toppers and other products, and how perfect they are for spring events.

Because today is the first day of spring I thought I'd make a list of the top 10 things I love about spring :)

1} Longer days

For me this means pleny of time for both work and play,
without the darkness of winter settling around us so early.

2} Eating ice cream outdoors
Finally you don't need to cuddle up on the couch, under a blanket, to enjoy ice cream. It is also not so hot that as soon as you hold your ice cream, it melts into a sticky puddle.

3} Waking to the sound of birds
In the summer birds begin the chirp about 4am which is just way too early. In the spring here they seem to appear with the sun, which is perfect timing.

4} Wearing flip-flops
Finally I can trade my cozy warm Uggs for a pair of brightly colored
flipflops, without freezing my toes off.

5}  Frozen drinks
Yum, what more is there to say?

6}  Vintage inspired swimsuits
No it's not warm enough to wear one, but it is time to start thinking about it.

7}  Driving with the car windows open
After cranking the heat in the car for the past few months we can finally roll down those windows and get messy hair.

8} Outdoor Parties
This is the perfect time of year to hold an outdoor party.  It's not so hot your uncomfortable, but the warmer sunshine make things a bit more cheery.

9}  Reading Outdoors
This is one of my favorite activities. Bringing whatever I'm reading outside in the sunshine.  So relaxing.

10} The reopening of Skips
And last but certainly not least is the reopening of my favorite burger place.  They are only open in the spring and summer, so we always visit as soon as they reopen.
