I love Spring!! I think my favorite thing is that we can open up our windows, and leave them open all day! There is no heating bill or AC bill! Here in AZ our summers are brutal so I enjoy knowing I have a few months (really weeks) where we can enjoying being outside!!

Thanks for the most amazing giveaway ever! I love the weather during Spring! I also love that it's light longer (even though I don't like that how dark it is when I get up...) One of my favorite things though is seeing my kids mature so much compared to the beginning of the year. It is so apparent right about now.

My favorite thing about spring is its symbolism: rebirth. Love the idea that things that once looked bleak and dead get new life, and are refreshed and rejuvenated! And Easter. I love Easter for the religious aspect, not so much the bunny/eggs/candy part:)

It’s such a simple thing, but I love DRY clear sidewalks! Walking the dog without fear of falling, running errands without adding extra time waddling penguin-style through the parking lot, leaving the house without having to don heavy footwear and Yaktrax… bluck. I just miss those clear sidewalks so much and can’t wait to have them back again! It's a major energy-lift to have that freedom.
