Happy first day of Spring! It came a day early this year, usually, it’s on March 21st, but this year it’s the 20th! I discovered this information by googling and enjoyed reading all about the first day of spring on the Farmers Almanac. Learning new information is always exciting and makes me smile. I’m sure it’s the same for you as well!
Since it’s Spring, I thought we would take a moment to reflect on the last few months of 2021 and what it has given us. So, I encourage you to pull out your journal, or even just meditate, and make a list of everything that has happened, good and bad, since January 1st. Have you broken your resolutions? Or, have you kept them? Have you enjoyed a little more freedom where you live? Write it all down and then, say thank you for the lessons you’ve learned, and think about the next few months until summer. What do you want to accomplish? What are your goals? Let’s make positive changes as the weather warms!
Now, on to my Weekend Musings…
DIY Spring and Easter Decor
I know how much you all love DIY videos. So, I went on the hunt for a Spring DIY video and found this one for you. What I like about it, is you don’t have to have a lot of money to make the decor. You can go to your local Dollar Tree or craft store to get these materials. Then, change your few dollars into 30 dollar decor pieces.
It’s so amazing what you can do if you have a little time and patience. Have fun!
13 Spring Recipes to Add to Your Cooking List
During this COVID-19 pandemic, I have been cooking many meals for my Ultimate Concierge and myself. In order to keep the kitchen spicey, I make sure to try new recipes often. Sometime’s they are 30-minute meals, and other times I like to try recipes that are more difficult and add more of a 5-star flare to our lives.
If you are looking for more recipes to make for yourself, your partner, or your family, make sure to check out this list of 13 Spring Recipes. It includes grilled chicken skewers, asparagus, goat cheese, and Tarragon Tart, plus much more! I know you will find something you will enjoy. Let’s get cooking!
Virtual Tour of Tokyo & the Famous Cherry Blossoms
Since international travel is mostly out of the question still, I wanted to share this virtual walking tour of Tokyo and the famous Cherry Blossoms in honor of Spring. The Cherry Blossoms are such a sight to see, and I hope one day we all get to see them in person again!
But, if you never plan to travel there, or want to get your travel fix right now, virtual travel through YouTube is the way to go. I hope you enjoyed walking through Tokyo as much as I did. Such beautiful Cherry Blossoms!
