One of the best parts about moving and buying our first home so far has been discovering all the different plants we have in our yard. We moved in this summer so we’ve gotten to see fall, winter, and now are front row for spring. If you follow on Instastories y’all know how excited I was about my Japanese Maple in the backyard. The bright pink blossoms took my breath away every time I looked outside. The cherry blossoms in front have the prettiest pink petals as well that now scatter all over our yard. I like to think it’s mother nature’s confetti. haha
Along with gorgeous blooms everywhere spring is so wonderful because we can all enjoy the outdoors again! I wouldn’t say I’m an outdoor girl but walks around the neighborhood and enjoying an outdoor patio or screened in porch definitely count.
Hopefully the warmer temps are here to stay because I recently switched up my winter closet to spring. An easy way to work in some “spring vibes” to your closet is with a spring bag. I recently added this Barrington Gifts blush tote to my collection and I love it. I’ve had Barrington Gifts’ Belmont Cabin Bag for 4 years so I knew this tote would be high quality – plus I wanted to have a lighter bag for spring. This Barrington Gifts tote has been the perfect tote for errands, trips to the park, and just everyday use. There’s really nothing better than functional and pretty and this tote is definitely both. The canvas material of these is so durable. What I also love about Barrington Gifts is their option to personalize. From the color of the bag to the color of the leather trim and the monogram, it’s all customizable. I think monogrammed accessories are so cute! And I love how you can get a duffle bag and tote to match.
It’s always bittersweet to move and while there are so many things I miss about our old home (re: the people and also my vaulted bedroom ceiling) – it’s been really fun to discover the new friendships (and fauna haha) that our new city has to offer. Thank you so much for reading!
