It’s definitely time to say goodbye to winter and raise a glass because spring is finally here! With that being said, there’s no better way to celebrate the new season than shedding a layer of winter gear and stepping outside into the warm weather with a well-made drink in hand. Although there are so many ways to enjoy springtime and the amazingly warm weather, here are a few favorites to get you in the mood:
Flip-flops. Break out the flip flops and let your feet breath! This is also a perfect reason for indulging in a pedicure…your feet deserve to look and feel their best too!
Open the windows. Depending on where you live, now is a great time to open the windows and breath in some fresh air! Feel the breeze, listen to the birds chirping outside and enjoy it before it gets too hot for this luxury.
Capture the moments. In a world of “selfies” and social media, now is the ideal time to be outdoors and snapping a few photos of friends, family or simply nature. Take time to look at nature with a new perspective and enjoy these moments. Getting outside and possibly taking a walk or having a picnic can be so refreshing for your mind, body and soul!
