Spring To-Do List

{Pretty flower blossoms + afternoon light.}
The official new year may begin in the dead of winter, but the start of spring has always felt like the true, new beginning {which makes sense as culturally our new year is typically in the middle of April}. I‘ve also always been biased that spring is one of my favorite times of year {alongside autumn}, not just because it’s my birth season, but also the fact that everything just feels a bit fresher & happier. Yesterday was the first day of spring {and National Proposal Day, apparently}, which has made me excited for doing things like dining al fresco again, enjoying the late afternoon light during sunset-chasing walks, and going to bustling farmer’s markets for fresh produce on Sunday mornings {followed by a brunch at home made with said produce}. Since I love a good to-do list, I figured I’d share ten things I’d like to accomplish before summer begins to help make the season of love feel a bit more special and a whole lot prettier. I hope my spring to-do list inspires you to celebrate the warmer weather over the next three months. 
I’d love to know, what’s on your spring to-do list this year?
Spring To-Do List
1. Host an at-home wine tasting {non-alcoholic wines and champagne count}, paired with a fruit and cheese plate.
2. Have a picnic-style lunch – whether it’s in the yard, a sunny window, the beach, or a pretty park.
3. Go outside, daily, for either an early morning run or late afternoon walk.
4. Spring clean and de-clutter, constantly.
5. Wear a bright lipstick, often.
6. Grill seasonal veggies and eat them al fresco style in the backyard or balcony.
7. Have an at-home spa day complete with a facial, manicure, and bubble bath.
8. Light candles through the day + buy fresh flowers, constantly, to help elevate the day.
9. Create a signature spring cocktail to sip on – something light, fizzy, & fruity.
10. Travel to nearby cities to explore new places for a day or a weekend.
