My Favorite Things About Spring
It may technically be spring but the season is struggling to show any signs here in New England. This happens every year; I know it's coming and just need to be patient. In the meantime I thought I'd share a few things I am looking forward to enjoy this spring.
1. Eating Al Fresco
As soon as the temperature hits anywhere near 60 degrees I am looking for any excuse to enjoy a meal outside. There is nothing better than enjoying a great meal in the sunshine.
2. Growing a Garden
We just purchased a raised bed garden and I can't wait to start planting some fruits and vegetables. Mark and I want our kids to appreciate and understand not only the work involved in growing and maintaining a garden but the importance of where our food comes from. We truly want to practice and have them learn the "farm to table" mental. Now, if I can just make sure my lack of a "green thumb" doesn't prevent us from growing we should be all set!
3. Trail Runs
I enjoy running a couple times a week and hate running on a treadmill during the winter months. A run outdoors is one of the most tranquil and re-energizing things I do for myself.
4. Longer Days
There is nothing like coming home from work and knowing there is still 2-3 more hours of daylight to enjoy with our kids. Whether we head to the park, go for a walk or just play in the yard, I cherish the extra minutes of daylight with them.
5. Local Farmer's Market
For all the vegetables we're not growing (see #2) I am looking forward to the Farmer's Market. Not only are we grabbing the freshest produce available, we're supporting foods sourced from local farms and supporting the community.
