3 Things I Like About Spring

I'm well and truly an Autumn & Winter girl, there is nothing I love more than cosying up on the sofa with a cup of tea, a blanket and a movie while it's pouring down with rain. But I am trying to enjoy the warmer months a bit more and I really don't want to spend this Spring and Summer complaining because there are some really lovely things about both seasons. They will never be my favourite but there is something good in everything and there are definitely some benefits to some of the things Spring brings. 

Lighter Evenings 

As much as I love it when it starts going dark at 4pm, it's not always practical if I'm out! I don't really like walking by myself or with others in the dark and even though I'm sure my area is safe, I feel much more comfortable during the warmer months. Something I've been really enjoying because of the lighter evenings recently has been going to bed quite early and watching tv in there with the blinds slightly open. I love the colour of the sky when the sun is setting and it makes the room look so pretty. One thing I can't forget about the lighter evenings is that is gives me so much more time to take blog photos! I'm sure a lot of bloggers will agree trying to take a pretty flatlay in the winter is a nightmare so as soon as spring hits and the lighter evenings start, we have so much more time! No need to rush to get that perfect picture when a bit of sun hits in the afternoon or to try and take as many as possible in one go when it's a nice day, most days are perfect now for pictures.

Pretty Flowers 

I love love love seeing pretty flowers all over my Instagram during the spring months. Everyone's taking pictures of blossom and daffodils and I just love it. For me autumn leaves are lovely and I enjoy seeing them all over the ground so much in the later months but you can't say all the trees, flowers and parks don't look amazing in the warmer months can you? I find in Spring I buy so many more flowers, they make a pretty good blog prop but also just brighten up my kitchen.

Easter Chocolate

 I saved the best til last. Easter Chocolate is basically the highlight of my year. I look forward to seeing the first creme egg in the shop every year and I pretty much start on it all as soon as it's available. I also stock up so I don't run out quite so quickly. I just love Easter Eggs, they are literally the best things ever and you can really never have too many. Who couldn't love all the chocolate available at this time of year - creme eggs, mini eggs, golden eggs, caramel eggs, ALL THE CHOCOLATE!

I think just the chocolate alone makes me enjoy Spring just that bit more. Do you love Spring? If so what do you love about it? I'd love to know.
