26 Ways to Celebrate Spring

I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.—Anne Lamott

Happy first day of spring! Although it’s still fairly chilly in DC, warmer temps and peak cherry blossoms are on the horizon.

As we leave winter’s hibernation, I like to take a moment to review its lessons, highlights, and challenges. Then I can make space for what’s to come in this brand new season by penning a spring wish list into my Daybook and many items are below.

May your transition into this spring be smooth, mindful, and full of ease. Bisous. x
