Spring Branches

Remember when I blogged about that awkward decorating phase when you take down the Christmas decor. Well, we are already at another crossroad in our decorating adventures in our home. The time between the last days of winter & the first days of spring. This is the time when I start adding spring details into the home when there is snow on the ground & frigid temperatures outside. I’m writing this post in hopes that it motivates me more to start decorating for spring. So far my “decorating” has been sticking spring branches in a basket in our entryway, but hey, it’s a start right? Can I just quickly say something with out you hating me? I’m going to miss winter. There, I said it. So now that half of you clicked out of my blog, let me explain myself. I know a lot of people are getting hit with tons of snow & ice & the driving conditions suck, but I’m talking about missing the snuggly weather, the warm drinks, slippers, heated seats in the car, layers of clothes, boots, warm jackets, & just all the loveliness of winter.

Winter to me this year is the calm before the storm. Winter is before we have to put our house on the market. This is our last winter here in North Carolina. So I guess the main reason I will miss winter this year is because I’m being sentimental. Winter ending is symbolic that this life we have now will be changing dramatically soon. While I’m going to miss winter, I am looking forward to the trees budding, having the windows open in the house, fresh breeze, warm days with cool nights, & the excitement of newness in the air. I’m looking forward to the changes too. New home, new life, new state.


So as I start to decorate for spring in the next couple of weeks, it will mean more to me this year than budding flowers in our home. It will be the last spring in the house & the weeks will start to be counted down to when this home that we built four years ago sells to another family that will hopefully love it as much as we have.


I have decided that I am going to welcome spring with open arms. I am going to embrace the change. I’m going to trust that the changing of the seasons will be a blessing to our lives. I keep reflecting back on my word for the year, adapt, & really applying it to every area of my life. Are you looking forward to spring? Does spring have a deeper meaning to you as well? & are you one of the crazy people that will be missing winter too? Leave me a comment below, find me on facebook, or chat with me on Instagram.
