There’s something magical about Spring that hasn’t changed for me since childhood. That feeling you get when school is almost out and skirts and sleeves get a little bit shorter. There’s something totally freeing about it and while Fall is still my favorite season (Three Words: Snuggly Sweater Weather!), Spring comes in a close second. I’ve got lots to be thankful for this month, so here are some of my happiest moments.
I got outside with my camera almost every day that I could and snapped lots of photos of all of the blooming flowers. They are probably my favorite subject. Here are a few of my favorites:
If you know me personally, you know that I am obsessed with all things coconut. I love the smell, the taste, the oil, the water, all of it! I also love lemons. I love diffusing the oil to clear the air and give everything a light, clean scent. I put it in my homemade cleaning products and I always keep sliced lemon on hand to add to my water. How can you not love these sunshiny, citrus fruits? I recently re-discovered this fabulous 3-in-1 lotion from Everyone/E.O. Products, and I am totally head over heels for it. I make a lot of my own beauty and body care products, but this stuff can’t be beat. I’m a chronic hand-washer, so my knuckles used to be so chalky and on the verge of cracking, but my skin drinks this stuff up. It’s non-greasy and it smells like a dream, but isn’t overpowering. It’s Gluten Free, Non-GMO and not tested on cute little animals, so it gets my big old stamp of approval. I know it seems silly to be thankful for lotion, but I get a big boost of happy every time I use it. Sunshine in a bottle, for sure!
I’ve had a pretty good month for weight loss, too. I made some good progress last year and I want that to see carry over into this one. The weather has been cooperating, so I’m able to get outside and walk more often, since it’s my favorite way to workout. The fella and I even discovered a nearby nature preserve with gorgeous hiking trails that we’ve been taking advantage of on the weekends. Getting back in nature has made me so happy, especially because parts of our trail remind me of my beloved Boulder, which I miss very much.
I want to hear from you! What were your memorable moments for March? Leave me a comment below and share in the joy! Staying in gratitude is an important part of how I stay positive, and nothing makes me more thankful than reading about how you’re keeping a smile on your face. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful April, Darling Hearts!
Wishing You Total Well-Being,
