strawberry

I love the changing season and I love to celebrate each of them with their own fresh, local food, flora and yarn-y inspirations.  Each season I make a little list of the pleasures I want to soak in. I call them manifestos, but they're really just love letters to the season.

Reading Havi's list of things-to-do-before-she-dies, I realized that these seasonal lists are my own little things-to-do-before-the-moment-passes. And goodness! Spring is nearly gone without a proper love letter.

I hope to keep listing these, every Thursday, as a reminder to soak it in over the weekend (and as a mid-week cheer-up).

This week,  Spring is feeling like a great time for:

  • Finding floral inspiration
  • Eating lots of strawberries
  • Making jam
  • Starting the garden
  • Sorting Easter Egg dyes
  • Baking tasty things

I did a few of these things last weekend, I'll be sharing them with you soon!

What do you like to do to celebrate Spring?

    Wow, that looks delicious! Do you do anything with the leftover fruit?

    Along with eating berries fresh out of hand, I am working on putting berries up in the freezer so we have some throughout the year when there are not fresh berries. Because Florida doesn't have a spring (or a fall for that matter), I don't have a lot of seasonal focus other than not dying of heat.

    Yesterday, I welcomed spring by buying asparagus and new potatoes from local farmers at the market and making a salad with them 🙂 Your strawberries look great, enjoy them!

    Ooh, I love asparagus! We've been eating a lot of it – over pasta and on pizzas!
