It’s the first day of spring!! 

Okay that doesn’t mean much for us Cali folks but it still makes me happy.  I hope this means my snow/ice/cold weather friends catch a break with warmer weather + sunshine soon.

In honor of spring, here are a few things that make me happy this time of year + my spring bucket list.

Fresh strawberries!!  I just picked some up at Whole Foods this week and I can’t get enough.  Especially with a drizzle of honey!

Lot’s of running.  Okay well, this is a given, but with the time change I am finding myself wanting to run + be outside more.  Maybe I’ll even get in a couple races!?

Fresh green chef salads!  Even better when ingredients are from the farmers market.

Watermelon Nuun icees.  Anyone else get stupid excited over crushed ice?

Sunday cruising down Cannery Row, which is a place we don’t want to be during summer tourist season.  This will be our first experience with it, so I’m kinda curious but I can imagine it’s going to be a mad house.

Spring bucket list:

  • Visit the farmers market.  I haven’t done this since we lived in the Bay Area so I’m excited about going.
  • Hike a new to me trail.
  • Explore on my beach cruiser.
  • Get our taxes done.  Sad, but true.  Ha!
  • Clean out + organize my closet.  Um yah, this has been on my list of things to do since we moved last November. 
  • Watch the sunset over the ocean.  You’d think I would do this all the time, but remember I am an 80 year old trapped in a 33 year olds body.
  • Spring clean our house.
  • Pick up a new pair of flip flops.

What are you excited about this spring?

  1. Getting rid of this snow!! The first day of spring and we already have lots of snow on the ground. BOO!! I do need to get to spring cleaning though since we will be moving in June – we have TOO Much stuff!

  2. Maybe you could catch the sunrise instead – I’m sure that you are an early riser!!
    I hope our farmers market opens soon – probably a few more weeks since we still have bitterly cold mornings.

  3. Looking forward to warmer weather, longer and longer days.being outside and eating outside. Was looking at buying some nuun and found out that watermelon is no longer available, although being up in Canada it may not have bin available anywaz. Also look forward to eating lots of ice cream! Fresh flowers and the farmers markets.

  4. Ahh I love your springy list + pics! Our main farmers market starts in June with limited selections and the others don’t start until august. I’ll be living through you for awhile!
    I’m mainly looking forward to days that are warm enough to be outside!

  5. Got our taxes back yesterday and it was a huge load off!

    I am loving this list. I think spring cleaning is on the top of mine. With the hubs working night shift and me working a second job the last couple of months, our house needs a good deep clean in a bad way. Especially our garage.. it is a mess.

  6. That’s an awesome list — plus I’m totally jealous over the springy pictures in your post. We just got another 4″ of snow…..waaaah! 🙁 First on my spring list is doing the taxes too……hate those things! But once the snow melts we will be outside planting veggies and flowers for the summer. And the best part of all is taking my running back outside……..I’m so dunzo with the treadmill this year 🙂

  7. For us Spring means Baseball. And we are fired up at our house for it. Spring also means my son gets to ride his bike while I run on Sunday mornings. He loves to do this and I love when he joins me. Such fun times together.

  8. Sounds like a great spring is in store for you! And you definitely kicked it off with some awesomeness! I plan on cleaning out my closet and drawers and re-organizing. LOVE spring cleaning!
