Spring is Springing

The Spring Equinox is almost upon us, which brings so many wonderful things to mind. Babies and blooming flowers, little lambs bouncing over a field of new green grass, beginnings and oh, so many new possibilities. I really don’t have a favorite time of the year, because I can always find something awesome about whatever month is on the calendar, but spring always seems to have that extra spark of something special. It could be because my youngest daughter was a spring baby or that I was married in the spring.
Or maybe it is all those flowers. I love flowers year ’round, but seeing the bulbs pop up, grow and bloom always seems like a gentle chiming alarm, letting us know the earth is wakening and it’s time for a new growing season. And, yeah, they are so pretty!
I think to a lot of people, spring means baseball. I’m totally clueless about it, but I do appreciate that there are suddenly so many guys in tight pants around to check out!
Spring, this year, means another go at the vegetable garden for us. Last year we had a good crop of tomatoes, a couple of pumpkins and enough fingerling potatoes for one meal. The rest was very, very skimpy. This year, we’ve amended the soil and know how the light will hit through the season a lot better, so fingers crossed I actually get a loaf of zucchini bread and a salad out of it this year, too
Spring’s all about fashion to me, too. After a winter of bundled up and layered (yes, even in sunny California. I have thin blood *g*) I’m really looking forward to dresses and lighter fabrics. Which, of course, leads to spring shoes. Sandals, baby!!!! I’m so ready for sandal season.
Don’t get me wrong, I do adore boots. If I could only own one single type of footwear, I’d have to go with boots, actually. But sandals… Oh sandals. The heights, the materials, the studs or ribbons or jewels. Whew, getting excited here!
But even as much as I love fashion and shoes, my absolute favorite thing about spring is the beginning of pedicure season!! Woot, happy toes, baby! I love the pampered luxury of a salon pedicure, the fun of at-home pedicures and the wild design choices to play with. Single color, ombre, designs, flowers, jewels, so much to choose from.
And thanks to the sandals, cute toes are easier to show off.
So what about you? What does spring mean to you? What’s your favorite thing about this season? And hey, are you a pedicure kind of gal? If so, what’s your favorite style?
