The sun has finally appeared in the gray-as-of-late Seattle skies. Cherry trees are filling the sidewalks with pink snow and the parks are packed with all sorts of people enjoying the respite from the odd, lingering winter we've had. Spring is here!
And for me, that means time to dig through the turtlenecks and try to locate the cute warm weather tops and capris. Yay! I love bringing out those favorite pieces from summer and it helps me not be tempted into buying a ton of new stuff when I walk past sales.
I don't really enjoy cleaning, but I do like organizing and sorting through stuff. So, this means I will be (and don't laugh) color/style coding my closet so that it's easier to find what goes together, and getting a pile of clothes ready for donation. It's pretty bad this year -- see the above picture for how out of whack my closet organizing is right now!
So tell me, do you have a spring ritual? Are you ready to dig through the closet, scrub all the cabinet doors, clean behind the refrigerator, or just start getting a regular pedicure? What do you do to signify that spring has sprung?
