Why I Love Spring

Why I Love Spring SimplyAbbi

Hello, Spring

The sky is a perfect shade of pastel blue, driving around I can see the first signs of Spring making its long-awaited appearance, I can see handfuls of daffodils scattered along the green. Outside my window, looking over the fields, I can see happy children darting around on scooters and bikes, dogs and puppies running loose and people taking slow strolls in the first of the light Spring sun. It’s beautiful. Truly. And my mood is at an all-time high as I can hear birds singing as I crack open my window for the first time in months.

I adore Spring. The tease of Summer and everything it brings. Flowers, blossom, sun, fresh warm air, longer days and nights. There isn’t a need for a heavy jacket, I suddenly need to remember to grab my sunglasses as I leave the front door and I am constantly browsing ASOS and Topshop for all the pink, pastel and lilac pieces that I need in my Spring wardrobe.

We may have had snow and constant weather threats but behind all that, there is a little bit of warmth, a little bit more sun and a few more hours of blue skies and I could. Not. Be. Happier. About. It. It makes me happy. Motivated. It makes me want to jump out of bed in the morning and get outside and appreciate the beauty that this season truly brings. It makes me want to plan adventures, city breaks, mini holidays. It makes me want to contact everyone I love and drag them for days out to the seafront, to pubs with beer gardens, fields perfect for walking around for hours or just a casual walk around town, basking in everything this new season brings.

01. Sun and Longer Days

Every time I happen to switch on the weather forecast there is a warning of snow, more rain, clouds and everything else we should have left behind by now but with the promise of Spring, comes the promise of at least a little bit more sunshine in our lives. There is truly nothing better than waking up on a Spring morning and opening your curtains to let in the golden light. From having breakfast and lunch outside to slow strolls in the last of the evening light to remembering to pack your sunnies everywhere you go, the sunshine and everything that comes with it (blue skies, singing birds, a happy-go-lucky mood) just put the biggest smile on my face. Plus, gone are the days of darkness by 6 pm and wanting to go to bed because it feels like 10 pm. Evenings are lighter and I am feeling so much better for it.

02. The Food

Is it just me, but when Spring comes around does food get that little bit better? I guess it is all down to personal preference but I have never really been a big fan of heavy stews, roasts, cottage pies and all that. I love light dinners. I’m talking salads (yep, I am that person), stir fry’s, BBQs, just light and airy foods. I don’t know, but I just seem to eat so much better in Spring and don’t feel the need for those heavy meals. Plus, just gimmie a BBQ. Please. I’m talking burgers, halloumi, seafood. I just want it all!

03. The Clothes

I wanted to include a little wishlist of all the Spring-inspired pieces I’ve been eyeing up at the bottom of this post but then a little online shop later and I’ve truly got myself enough for a whole new wardrobe (or three!) if I end up getting everything I love. I’m talking those gorgeous floaty floral dresses Instagram is obsessed with, pastel bags (well, pastel everything), straw bags, all the graphic t-shirts and light jackets. I’m so over heavy jumpers, thick coats and boots. Just gimmie the sun and a spring wardrobe and I’ll be a happy bunny!

04. Spring Cleaning

Is cleaning an odd thing to get excited about?! I don’t know, but I, for one am actually looking forward to my Spring clean this year! The more I spend time in my room, I’m noticing more and more just how much ‘stuff’ I actually own and don’t use or don’t need so I’m looking forward to having a complete clear out of everything. Clothes, make-up, all the drawers, shelves, under the bed, everything. I’m planning to dedicate a few days just to truly get stuck in clearing everything out and giving everything the deepest clean. I can’t wait. No, really. I can’t!
