Spring Break

9 spring-y things to enjoy way past break


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 mud.

 

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.
