a list of little things | reasons spring needs to arrive

reasons spring needs to arrive:
color, color, color--anything but grey.
the scent of fresh flowers and fresh-cut grass.
long walks around the city.
bare feet and sandals.
open windows with cool breezes.
saturday mornings at the farmers market.
lunch at outdoor cafes.
sunny runs along the lakefront.
shorts, skirts, and dresses.
my golden boat shoes.
iced--not hot--starbucks passion tea.
bike rides and baseball games.
the most perfect spring collection at j.crew.
spontaneous road trips.
outdoor concerts.
... oh, and did I mention color?

Tell me: Are you looking forward to a change in seasons?
What are your favorite things about spring?

I am so looking forward to spring, cute flirty spring dresses and the cool spring breeze. =)

I am looking forward to just seeing the sunshine. Yesterday was beautiful here in MS and my friend and I took complete advantage of it; by going and sitting out at a picnic table at the reservoir. Was chilly and we didn't stay long, but it is little times like those that makes me appreciate how much I love springtime and friendships. :)

So looking forward to spring!! Spring never seems to last long to me, and it's so nice!!
My favorite part of spring is the weather, not too hot, not too cold. And the flowers that have bloomed in the trees. If only there could be flowers in trees all year!

It was 45 degrees yesterday and the sun was dancing up in the sky. The temperature increase made me feel like a new woman, needless to say I can't wait to welcome the warmer days and colorful flowers.

Oh my gosh, I could not agree more with bare feet, farmer's market, Starbucks passion tea, and bike rides. Other things I am looking forward to: roller blading at the lake, picnics, outdoor dining/"al fresco", and having an ice cream party in the park. (Can you tell I like eating and can you tell I like doing so outside?)

We have more snow/ice on the way - so depressing - and it makes me crave spring even more.

I'm dying for spring to get here! I want to be able to go out on the lawn in front of my apartment and "study"... more like take a nap.

yeah. hey, i'm a winter girl at heart, but when it looks like this in February, i get restless for walking. i love...
walks around the neighborhood,
driving around with the windows open and the radio blasting,
little lime green leaves on the trees next to a pop of blue sky,
nectarines :),
school almost over (yeaaah!),
flower shops .

I could not agree with you more! I am so looking forward to spring time and getting rid of these sub-zero temps!
