Best of GL

Leap into spring!

 
Today is the first day of S-P-R-I-N-G and we are thrilled to pieces here at GL! Is it just us, or was this one heck of a long winter? Thank goodness we can say buh-bye to Jack Frost and hello to fresh buds, green grass and warm weather!

 

We asked GL staffers what they love most about spring. Here’s what they said:

 

“Pastels. For some reason, those shades just make me cheery.” – Trish M., Associate Editor

 

“The way the flowers begin to bud on this really big floral tree in my neighbor's yard. When it begins to get fragrant on my block, I know that spring is here!” – Afiya Augustine, Contributing Writer

 

“I like not having to wear tights with skirts and dresses. And daffodils.” – Jessica D’Argenio, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

 

My absolute favorite thing about spring is the positive energy that's in the air. From the blooming flowers to the excitement of warm weather and extra daylight, everything seems to reawaken.” – Brooke Winters, Advertising Sales Director

 

“The way spring rain smells—fresh, you know? And sandal season! After months of boots, my toes crave freedom.” – Brittany Taylor, Online Editorial Assistant

 

"I grew up in Michigan, where the state motto is '10 month of winter, two months of bad skating.' Spring means hunting for Easter eggs in the snow. Some people hated it but I always loved having snow on the ground and warm sun. Spring skiing is still one of my favorite things to do this day—all of the fun of being on the mountain minus the frostbite!" – Karen Bokram, Founding Editor/Publisher

 

What’s your favorite thing about spring, babes?
