At last, it is Spring!
Although the past week brought nights of freeze warnings and some snow, the calendar tells us it is Spring.
My flowering crabapple tree is in bloom and temperatures are finally going to be warm in my area for the next week.
After my family’s emotionally hard winter we are all ready for a refresh!
No matter how long the winter,
spring is sure to follow.
When growing up my Momma always did her “spring cleaning”, going so far as to wash down walls! We had so little, but she wanted to keep what we had, neat and clean.
Just like Momma, but not as extreme as washing walls, I try to give my home a spring refresh. I give everything a good dusting, eliminate clutter that has piled up over the winter months, and cleaning a few windows, letting in the spring sunshine.
I want my home to be clean, simple, and uncluttered. Seriously, having clutter in a home is horrible. Never being able to find anything is so stressful, it weighs so heavy on your overall life. If eliminating clutter is the only thing you have time for this spring, do it!
My spring decorating is no frills, just simple.
Found some white dishes in a thrift store and added to each side of my dining room hutch.
Spent $3 on some dogwood sprigs at Hobby Lobby for the table, and added some sweet yellow birds here and there.
Spring is also a good time to refresh other areas of our lives, our emotions, our hearts.
I have spent some quiet time focusing on my life, my faith, forgiveness, letting go, the important things, love, tell them!
Refresh! Take care of those areas in your life that are weighing you down.
Go outside today, breathe the sweet spring air, feel the warm spring sunshine, and refresh!
Lovely thoughts to all of you!
