Is it summer where you are yet? It’s definitely arrived here! We went from our gloomy May and June mornings to it being almost 90 degrees today! And believe me, I’m not complaining. I’ve been wanting some sunshine and warmth for months now, so it feels delicious. (Though when you speak to me in August, I might not be feeling quite as happy about it, haha!) 😉
It’s hard to believe we’re already half way through May!! How did that happen?! I feel like I was just talking about winter decorating, and now we’re well into spring and about to talk summer! (Not that I’m complaining mind you – we’ve had such a rainy winter and quite a gloomy spring so I’m very ready for some sun!)
Do you love spring as much as I do?! To me, it is one of my favorite seasons. There is just something so lovely about the flower buds popping out, the grass turning green, and some sunshine on your face after a long (and in my case, wet) winter!
It’s spring! Well, not exactly or officially, haha! But it is March. And we sprung ahead on the clocks this past weekend, so it’s as close as we need to be to decorate!
I know a lot of friends and readers who have asked me about decorating for winter or spring. It seems everyone decorates for the holidays, and that’s kind of straight up and obvious. Everyone gets that one. But winter and spring are another story. Especially when you don’t celebrate Easter, or when Easter is really late, like this year. It’s sometimes hard to figure out what the right balance is. How to do it easily. How not to get too “theme-y.” And how to do it without breaking the bank!
Okay, I know I said I like winter. And I said I like rain. And I do. Except when it’s been weeks and weeks of it!
But this week we finally got some sun – and it felt so good! It’s still cold, but at least the grey skies are gone for now (though an Alaskan storm is supposed to bring snow this week – snow!!) If you’re anything like me, you’re ready for spring to arrive, so today I’m sharing some simple spring decorating in the kitchen.
I’m so excited to share this post with you as it is one of my favorites of the whole year. I’m joining some blogging friends for a very unique tour – the Christmas Nights Tour! Thank you to my friends Kristen of Ella Claire and Courtney of French Country Cottage for putting this tour together this year!
