Homeowners everywhere are breathing a collective sigh of relief. After months of back and forth, ice storms and brief glimpses of spring thaw, the days are finally warming up and there are tufts of grass timidly peeking out all over the place. Whether these changes signal your annual cleaning marathon or your mad dash to get the winter debris cleared out of the flowerbeds, most people will at least agree that this time of year is inspiring. Here are a few suggestions for how you and your home can celebrate the arrival of Spring.
Get Some Vitamin D
We have been stuck indoors for months of cold winter. Springtime means we can get outside and enjoy the warmer weather and soak up the sunshine. Throw on a sweater and take your afternoon tea outside where the fresh air and sun will rejuvenate you and give you just the boost you need.
Buckle Down and Clean
The universal sign of a long winter is the inexplicable accumulation of clutter and cobwebs we all seem to have in every corner of our homes. It's time to stop stuffing papers in drawers and hiding the clutter in the closet; throw open the windows and brush away the dust bunnies. Put on some music with an upbeat tempo and make the best of spring cleaning!
Stop and smell the roses
After months of cold winds and snow covered gardens, local flora and fauna begin to resurface. Roll up your sleeves and spruce up your landscaping. Pull out the weeds, turn over the soil and plant some new flowers that will breathe new life into the curb appeal of your homes.
Test Out Your Kitchen
With Easter on it's way, it's the perfect time to test all those recipes you've been collecting. Get into the kitchen and start baking it will give the whole family a warm feeling. Not to mention, if you decide to sell your home, the smell of cookies and coffee cake can only help!
Get Away From it All
Whether you have the resources to book a week away in a tropical climate or whether you just have time to enjoy a "staycation" in your living room, spring is the perfect season to give your life a jumpstart. After months of salting the sidewalk and shovelling the driveway, you deserve a chance to relax and charge your batteries.
There are so many ways to celebrate the arrival of the new season and however you choose to ring in spring, make sure you make the most out of each day. Enjoy your home, your family and the beautiful weather that is just around the corner.
