I realize it's just called "spring." I'm just trying to paint you a picture, guys. Geez.
Lately I've been feeling just a little bit off-center, if that makes any sense. Maybe it was the recent time change? I never quite know if I should wear a heavy coat or if it's okay to break out a few skirts with (dare I say it) no tights?! Is soup and chili still in, or should we be moving on to summer treats? Can I start wearing sandals every day yet? :) We just got a snow/sleet combo here yesterday, but now it's in the 50s. I don't know what to think.
During this transitional time I'm trying to remind myself to make goals and plans for the following few months. I find I feel much more centered with a to-do list in my hand. I'd love to make some plans to clean and organize our garage, fix up our backyard, and deep clean our house during this spring season. I feel like either all the tiny to-dos can start to add up and feel overwhelming, or I can choose to let them give me purpose day-to-day as I gear up for warmer weather.If we do end up with a few more days of cold weather I know exactly what to do. Elsie and I have a bit of ritual of fantasizing about building a giant sister mansion somewhere warm. She likes to mention Palm Springs, CA or Austin, TX. Although our schemes might be nothing more than dreams—as neither of us plan to move completely away from our beloved Midwest anytime soon—it sure feels warmer just thinking about it. :)
What about you? Do you have any spring goals for the coming months? Any little tricks you rely on to get you through the end of the winter blues? xo. Emma & Elsie
