There are many reasons to celebrate springtime. Easter, warmer weather, flowers in bloom, and spending more time outdoors. Here is favorite things Friday spring edition!


Painting Easter eggs

Going to the farmer’s market

Planting a spring garden.

Putting together Easter baskets and decorating the house for the holiday.

Taking a walk or hike.

Spring cleaning! It’s nice to listen to my favorite music while I clean the house, change curtains, and maybe open a few windows.

Seeking out the first jonquils, snowdrops, and spring trees budding.

Making an Easter brunch for the family with ham, rolls, hashbrown casserole, and deviled eggs.

Baby animals! We are lucky enough to have a good view of all our neighbors newborn calves and lambs.

Watching movies I associate with this time of year, like the Ten Commandments, It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!, Steel Magnolias, Easter Parade, Peter Rabbit, or Here Comes Peter Cottontail.

Easter is a good day to read aloud the story of Christ’s miraculous resurrection or attend church services with family.
