Spring Fever.

I have succumbed to Spring Fever.

I love the fact that there is light in the morning when I wake up. I love seeing flowers and leaves on the trees again. I love how when I walk down the street people are smiling and not running to the nearest bus shelter from the rain. I love that it means it is nearly Easter and Summer!

I was speaking to my neighbour today. She sadly lost her husband last Fall and she was saying that the spring weather had made her feel more hopeful for the first time since his passing. She was right - there is that 'something' about blue skies, warm weather, birds twittering and genuine seasonal smiles that make you feel like that most things can turn out for the best. Whatever it is that is niggling you.

I know America is on Spring Break at the moment and I have loved hearing what you guys are getting up to. Lucky people- I hope you all have a great rest! I start mine next week and I cannot wait! I am planning my many picnic trips already.

What is it you love (or maybe dislike?) about Spring?

Also, I want to introduce you to Swagbucks! You collect digital 'bucks' which you redeem for $5 Amazon, Target and Macy's giftcards. For example, if you earn 20 bucks it means you have earned 4x $5 giftcards. This is all for just using their search engine which is powered by google! I have saved up nearly £30 (around $45) and will be buying lots on Amazon soon! I know a blogger, Jessica, has saved up enough to get her son a $250 car seat from Amazon. It is completely legit and a brilliant way to save money. This is the link and I hope you check it out!

Have a good day!

The weather man is gd at the moment! Spring rocks because it means I don't have to worry about layering!

I live in the UK. I know you do too but we do not have a Target or Macy's. So is it just Amazon we can use to redeem on then?

Oh I love spring! It and fall are my two favorite seasons.
Hope you have a great spring break next week!

@ Lynsey - yeah the only downfall to being in the UK is you can only use it for Amazon but you can save up for concert tickets etc through other sites like live nation. Hope that helps! X.

Spring always makes me feel alive! I love the sunshine, light breeze, and little bits of green popping up all over the place.

So glad you're getting close to Spring will refresh you!

I love spring, too! I don't like that it means the beginning of tornado season here in the midwest, though... oh well.

I love swagbucks!! I saw Jessica write a post on it once too... and I've been hooked ever since!

Hope the rest of your week goes by fast and you have a fantastic spring break!

WOW! thanks for the great find I will have to check it out :)

My favorite thing about spring would have to be the smell of the air...seriously spring smells different fresher (I especially love the smell after a good spring rain)

I LOVE your new blog design it looks SO good. I'm jealous. P.S. This post about your mom made my eyes well up with tears. You are a beautiful writer and your love for her just flowed right off the page.
