Embracing The Outdoors

nullnullnullnullnullnull

Good morning, sweets! How are you all enjoying this lovely week?

Like I said yesterday, I'm relaxing and taking it easy and finally getting back into a normal pace of life. The days are lighter and brighter, the trees and flowers are starting to bloom, and all I want to do is be outdoors as much as possible {minus yesterday morning during the cold spell we experienced! Luckily it warmed up by afternoon :)}

I'm longing for walks in the park, dining outdoors and who knows, maybe even a picnic if we're lucky enough. Hoping to experience one or all of these this weekend.

Are you taking advantage of lovely weather these days?

Have a wondeful day, loves!

xoxo

It has been a bit too cold this week here for my liking. Last week was beautiful and I spend most of Friday outdoors. I went for an hour 1/2 walk with a friend... it was divine. The forsythia and pear trees in my yard are blooming early this year and that makes me happy! xo

I was enjoying the weather until we got hit with below freezing temperatures and i pulled my down winter jacket back out of the closet.

Oh Dawn, I simply love the blossom trees. I so enjoyed them in Boston. So wish we had them here as well.

Have a gorgeous day. I hope the weather is still beautiful. xx

i'm right there with you. this weather makes me long for outdoors - well, as long as i take my allergy meds or else it won't be as fun. ;)

Laura said...

I don't know what it is, and I am so not complaining but my rainy city has turned into a very sunny city and I have been outside everyday for nearly 3 weeks straight...bike riding, walking, shopping, taking pictures, anything!!

I adore those dresses and want one for myself! I also wish I could be spending more time outside - I love spring so much as it warms up. This weekend I will get to be back to playing outside - can't wait!
Much love,

Bonnie said...

The weather certainly has been wonderful lately. Instead of getting nasty hot, can it stay like this forever?

Oh yes, I'm enjoying being outdoors. I spent the greater part of the day lying on a blanket under cherry trees in bloom. It was simply a bliss.
