Spring is officially here and we couldn’t be happier—well, unless it
was bringing with it the start of a summer-length spring break. Hey, a girl can
dream right? Here are nine things that are a little bit more accessible to us
all, and just as awesome.
Dining al fresco. If your
school lets ya go outside during lunch, grab your brown bag and make it a
picnic. The fresh air will help ya recharge.
Fresh flowers. A secret?
Wildflowers are just as beautiful as store-bought, so there’s no reason not to
pick a bundle for your room (or plant some seeds in a window-side pot).
Cut-off shorts. Finally!
Craft a new pair out of worn-out jeans with a pair of scissors, some chalk to
help you mark your cutting line and patience. Measure once, cut it long, then
keep going shorter and shorter ‘til you’re happy.
Bare toes. Wiggle those
piggies in the grass! Run through sprinklers! Play fetch with the dog!
Climbing trees. Grab your
current assigned reading, toss it in a bag over your shoulder and pick your
favorite limb to curl up on.
Fresh produce. Forget the
grocery store; hang out at farmer’s markets. For a fun afternoon, pick one
thing you’ve never eaten before, ask the person selling it how to prepare it,
then go home and get cooking.
Rita’s Water Ice. Don’t make
us pick a favorite flavor. Just don’t.
Warm spring rain. From
falling asleep to thunder, getting caught in a surprise shower, taking in the
rainbows and puddle jumping with pals, we love every aspect. Except maybe the
Crazy critters. Yes, birds
tweeting at dawn is a wee bit annoying, but get out there and take in Mother
Nature. We love watching squirrels—they’re hysterical.

spring? Tell us in the comments!
