Alright, friends. I hate to keep beating a dead horse in regards to the cold weather we’ve been having, but spring is my favorite time of year and I am so ready for it to finally arrive!
I’ve noticed myself in a bit of a funk because of the chill, so today I thought it would be fun to share 5 ways to make it feel like spring, even when it’s 20 degrees outside!
When you think about it, there are lots of little things you can do to bring some sunshine into your day, no matter what the thermometer reads. I hope these bring a smile to your face and some spring to your step! (Get it?)
And since I could use all of the inspiration I could get, I’d love to hear how you make it feel like spring even when it’s cold. Leave a comment below!
5 ways to make it feel like spring
O N E // Add a Mini Orchid to Your Desk
My sweet bible study leader recently gifted me a miniature Phalaenopsis orchid for my desk, and it’s been putting a smile on my face ever since! Having something living and lovely to look at reminds me spring is just around the corner.Make a Yummy Salad
T W O // Make a Yummy Salad
When the weather gets chilly, I automatically turn to comfort foods as a coping mechanism. But there’s something about a fresh, yummy salad that automatically has me thinking summer! I’m trying out this one and this one this week. I’d love to hear your favorite salad recipes, too!

F O U R // Create a Virtual Vacation Wardrobe
A little online shopping never hurt anyone, right?! New spring styles finally are dropping everywhere, so spend some time shopping the new arrivals at your favorite retailers! (A few of mine? Tuckernuck, Revolve, Shopbop, ASOS, Kendra Scott, Red Dress Boutique and Forever21.) Then, create a cart comprised of your dream vacation wardrobe. Hear me on this, you don’t need to buy a single thing! Just daydreaming can be fun enough!
F I V E // Take a Walk on the Treadmill
There are few things I love more than going for a walk on a sunny day, but you’d have to drag me out of my house to get me to do the same when it’s frosty. I’ve found that a nice power-walk on the treadmill still gets those same endorphins pumping. True, you don’t have the beautiful outdoor views, but you’re being active in the same way, and that’s always a mood-booster! Bonus points if you do it in this cute new tennis skirt.

Being cooped up indoors all day can be a drag after a while. “Breathe some fresh air” into your space with a new, fresh candle! This is my favorite spring candle ever… such a clean, lovely, calming aroma!
