It’s Live a Little Monday – and time for weekly dose of happy living, jump on the bandwagon and write your own ways to enjoy life this spring.

10 Easy ways to enjoy spring

1. Buy tulips. Or other cut spring flowers.

2. Bring out the spring clothes and wear some color!

3. Go to farmer’s market and find seasonal produce, like asparagus. Try Salmon and Asparagus With Hollandaise Sauce, one of our family’s favorite easy dinners.

4. Go for a walk and breathe fresh air. Sounds simple, but trust me, you’ll feel better.

5. Pack away winter clothes… and while this is not enjoyable by my measures… but emptying your closet of clothes and then filling it with seasonal clothes can be fun.

6. Get a haircut.

7. Or better: try a new hair color. This will do wonders for your mood and you’ll be ready to rock the season.

8. Open the windows and invite spring indoors. The weather is just perfect, not too cold and not too hot, bring the fresh air in!

9. Kick off the grilling season or have a picnic. Or have a coffee/wine/beer or whatever your drink is, on a terrace. Just eat and drink outdoors!

10. Get a pretty pedicure and show off your toes with open toe shoes.

  1. What an upbeat post! I completely agree, especially with the switch to the spring wardrobe. I love the colors, and I didn’t realize how sick I was of wearing the same things for so long. Even better – I swapped out the baby’s clothes, so she has a fresh new wardrobe and I get to dress her up in teensy dresses and shorts! :)

  2. I love opening the windows when spring comes around. It seems to let all of the stale air out of the house. This weekend I moved all of the winter clothes out of the kids’ dressers and filled them with shorts and tshirts. We are ready for it to be warm, which is a good thing because it was already in the 80s this weekend.

  3. I went for a walk around my yard this morning and found a beautiful purple flower to enjoy, the rhubarb coming up and some swiss chard that some how survived the winter and is growing in the garden! Yeah Spring! I just hope it stays here in Michigan.

    I found your blog through the blogger comment club- thanks for letting me visit.

  4. Totally agree with you on #4. All great tips but sometimes overlooked as ways to feel good in our busy lives. Spring is such a great time of year. Even here in Florida where it seems to always be sunny and warm, Spring is just gorgeous. I plan on enjoying it to it’s fullest. :)
