Spring Forward

posted on: 4.09.2015

It's that time again, seasonal bucket list time! If you were under the impression that Southern Calfornia skips out on winter, well then you should know this is even more true for spring. Although, it did rain two days ago and it was magical. To keep with tradition I will first re-cap my winter list and then move onto spring. You should know I am using more photos from our Texas trip as my winter highlight photos because this short stay was the closest thing to a typical winter we experienced. OK, enough with the jibber jabber, onto the lists!

Winter Re-Cap:
-take at least one yoga class each week, I can sense my flexibly dwindling. About that...yeah still dwindling.
-revisit this whole 10K bit, and maybe even add in a half! Signed up for a half and ran a 5K, I'd say that's still a win.
-get a PUG: YES YES YES. Look at my beautiful baby!
-begin my drawing a day project, I'll reveal more soon: Yep. Even though I have fallen behind it is still going strong! 
-like I said before, open that shop. Check!
-embark on our wannabe annual Morro Bay excursion (Pleaseeeee, Erik). No, sad face. We're trying to be a bit more frugal these days.
-watch all of the Oscar nominees before the Oscars. Almost, I still haven't seen the winner.
-sell a painting, maybe 2 :). Yep :).
-enjoy a rainy day in bed, with tea, and movies, and perhaps Bon Iver. No to the music, yes to the rest.
-go to Disneyland! I am a firm believer that the best time to visit is during the winter. I think you heard about that attempt two days ago.
-spend NYE with friends and wear sequins...I'll take any excuse to be physically sparkling. No sequins, but I wore vintage fur and I think that's equally jazzy.
-create an herb garden, although I am not a fan of bugs, or dirt for that matter. Yep! Pup loves it too.

Spring:
-stop and smell the roses, they are so gorgeous right now
-speaking of flowers, photograph as many as I can (I like flower pics okay?)
-join my mom in her current sewing venture and make my own drawstring pants
- have a picnic on the grass, even though I prefer the sand
-go sailing
-build a website in place of my Etsy shop
-apply to several summer art fairs
-run a half marathon, I better I am already signed up!
-find some awesome vintage patio furniture for our deck, then enjoy a dinner under the setting sun
-rock a flower crown, not at a music festival

  9. These photos are so great of the snow. I know all about S. Cal snow, but it is so surprising considering the rest of the nearby cities that stay warm. Wonderful photos!
