    Spring is my favorite time of year, weather is nice, flowers are blooming, stays daylight longer, and the kids can go out and get fresh air! We live on 60 acres in the country so there are alot of outdoor activities for all of us!

    It's really nice here in Arizona lately and we've been taking MAJOR advantage of it. Our yard is nice and cleaned up, the house is spring fresh and we're ready for the pool to be warm now!

    I pull out my gardening magazines and start dreaming. We bring our camper to the house and start cleaning and making small repairs to get it ready for camping in April. We start hiking more. I'm able to get out and do more with photography. We spend more time on our very large hammock outside which we all like to lie on at night and stare at the moon while talking about our day. We start going out for ice cream more!

    My girls and I just about live outside in the spring time on our 14 acre farm in Georgia. My girls get so excited to see the first blooms of forsynthia and crabapple trees.

    I love this time of year- 80 degrees and gorgeous with everything turning green and the azaleas blooming! Beautiful! I love shopping the sales racks for fun bright colors to wear to match the season and planning a summer vacation is also a plus- it seems to make the time fly!

    I can't wait to be able to put my winter coat away for the season and know that I will not be getting it out for at least 7 months. I love the spring time especially when the time changes and it is not getting dark at 5:00! Buying new spring clothes always puts me in a good mood too!!!
