Where the heck did the Spring go? I feel like it swished in and out of my life leaving only memories of cardigans and Easter eggs.

Since it is officially Summer here in the states I figured I would share with you my favorite things from Spring. You can find my Fall and Winter Editions HERE and HERE.

Easter Cake

Easter was a hoot this year because my youngest was able to fully grasp the day and the events. He is too young to understand the meaning but my daughter does. I did my annual egg hunt with the kids, gave them their Easter baskets, and made my Easter bunny cake. This year the children took part in decorating it and I think they did a great job!

Starbucks

I treat myself to a Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha here and there and it was super nice to have them on those breezy spring days. I love the quote that was on mine and it exactly what I am all about!

I feel lucky to be able to live in such a pretty neighborhood. Not all parts of New York are pretty especially in the urban areas so I feel blessed to pass by pretty roses like this one on my way home from picking the children up from school.

Seeing all the flowers everywhere is one of my favorite parts of Springtime.

This was taken on my phone and shared via Instagram as well. Please excuse the slight fuzziness.

I may not love bugs and creepy crawlers but I sure love nature, especially trees. After school on the non-rainy days I would stop by what I affectionately call the "bird park". Its a park before a larger one in my town and it just has benches, trees, flowers, a walking trail all around in a circle, and of course birds! It's perfect to play in and have a picnic in. I loved taking my children there before we headed home and started homework. It was a nice way to take a breather for me too and just enjoy them being happy and having fun.

1960's Fashion

My final favorite part of this Spring was dressing up all in my 1960's glory. It was officially my first time doing so and I loved it to bits! I definitely will be doing more 1960's outfit posts in the future.

I attended the Beauty Con Event in Manhattan and had a hoot of a time. You can read more about it HERE.

Spring is my second favorite season and Fall is my first. Summer is my least favorite. As you can imagine how hot it can be and add a congested city and leg braces to the mix, well it's a very uncomfortable season for me to be in. I do intend to find moments of joy in the midst of the heat and humidity and look forward to sharing what my favorite things for summer were in early September.

What is your favorite season? What were your favorite things about this Spring?

  1. Excellently said! I feel like it left similar fleeting, lightning fast impressions, too. For me it's mostly of getting my Etsy shop off the ground and of one medical issue after another with our dear dog, Annie. I'm so happy summer is here at long last. It's time for long days, cool drinks, taking things easy, and savouring the many fabulous joys of this sunkissed season.
