spring has sprung.

Spring is here in the South and I couldn't be happier. All the trees are in full bloom, and my allergies are on full alert. It's time for flip flops to be busted out, kayaks to be dusted off and front porch living to get under way. Mike, myself and his brother JO spent Saturday afternoon chilling out on our front porch. We enjoyed good conversation, a ton of laughs and sipped on beverages well until the sun went down. Once the sun was down we grilled out. We cooked up chicken, squash, zuccini and baked sweet potatoes all the while rocking out to some classic Bruce aka The Boss.  You just can't go wrong with that.

Spring is here, and Life is Good!

I was still sipping on ice water at this point 
but representing UNC at the same time. GO HEELS!

Has spring sprung where you live yet?

Pin It!

I have been driving with the windows down for around a week. And I spent Friday afternoon on a patio with margaritas.

I think Spring is officially here too.

spring is trying so hard to arrive, but winter seems to be sitting on it and keeping it from coming. We've had a few warm days and crocuses are coming up, but tomorrow it'll be back down in the 40's and I might cry.

kidding about the crying part, but I can't wait until spring!

Cocktails on a patio = best moment of my day, whenever it happens. :)

There are rumors of snow this week in the Buckeye State, but for now we are enjoying the 50s-70s crazy range that we always get.

And what's more... SPRING CLEANING, can I get a hells yeah! I love it. It feels like a little renewal every year. Happy Spring to you, girl!

I am in Georgia and the weather keeps messing with us a little, but I am so thankful for any Spring days we get!

That sounds like a fantastic day!! Spring is here too! Actually, yesterday it was 82...so whatever that is. The cats have loved having the windows open and I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival's Balloon Glow last weekend...along with a trip to Savannah on Sunday. You just can't beat Spring in the south, can you? ;-D
GO BIG BlUE (UK BLUE, that is)

No,no it hasn't arrived. But the cold rain has. And frankly, your most perfect description of my most favorite spring activity (booze & grillin on a patio) is giving me a big case of the Sads. HUGE case :) I can't wait to be able to write a post like this one! Glad you made the most of it!
