Walking into the grocery store yesterday, with my youngest at my side, we couldn’t help but notice the buckets of local daffodils for $2/bunch. As we kept walking, we passed flowers for the yard and new rubber boots. Before we know it, s’mores supplies will be sitting on the ends of the isles. Spring is officially here and even if the weather isn’t fully on-board yet, we can still totally celebrate.
I’m really excited about the items on this list and I hope you guys enjoy them as well. Things like the butterfly kit are SO much fun. There are so many ways to make each and every occasion a little more meaningful. May we be the people who don’t wait for the sun to come out, but the ones who celebrate everything with enthusiasm and creativity!
