Friday Favorites: Springtime in the South

Since this week has thus far been about food, fitness, running and inspiration, nightsweats and motivation… and being social (ps I didn’t even tell you all of it!), I thought that I would talk about none of these things and instead get a bit nostalgic. Also because I am thinking about my mommy and we made my trip to go home. YAY.  And because I haven’t partaken in the fun in quite a while, I thought I would join up with Friday Favorites and the Friday Five and talk about….

My Five Favorite Aspects of Springtime in the South (that I miss Desperately!)

And, just so that you know, I desperately miss a lot of things, like my mom and Chick-fil-a and such, but these are general things.

1) Everything in bloom

Specifically Cherry Blossoms, Dogwoods, and Azaleas

Oh and fun fact, I wanted pink dogwoods or azaleas to be our wedding flower but it was too late in the season. So we based our flowers etc on colors, specifically the colors of wild azaleas (yellow, purple, bright pink, light pink, and white), green (the leaves), and blue of the sky.

2) The way the air smells and feels.

The magnolias, the blossoms, the freshly cut onion grass for soccer… there is just a smell about the air that can’t be replicated!

Twee is ma fwend.

Twee is ma fwend.

The air is crisp. Not humid, not cold, but chilly and dewy and brisk. And then the sun comes up and the world warms and it is just amazing. 

3) The calm before the storm

From when I was in school. You are done with midterms, but exams are not yet on the horizon. Activities are swinging away, but there is not final pressure there yet–horse shows, work, whatever. And my birthday is in the middle of it, so celebrating was easy and not worrisome! Plus, I thought that Good Friday was called that because my birthday was often around it. 

4) Farmer’s Markets!

Spring and the introduction to summer produce means that it is time to get cooking with fresh herbs, fresh everything. And with Easter and spring get togethers, grilling and baking are back on the docket! 

5) BREAKING OUT THE SHORTS!

This was taken inside don’t get too excited

Avert your eyes–it’s time for my pasty legs to get some LOVING. Although it did mean that I had to start shaving more regularly, haha. And I get my birthday haircut. So hairs are getting cut all around. (These pics are from last year’s trip home)

A short post, but I hope one that makes you feel happy about the months to come! Happy weekend everyone!

What are your favorite harbingers of spring? What is your favorite place to be in the spring? 

When we were choosing when and where to get married, I told Alex that I wanted to get married outside in Atlanta in May (to me there is no place that is more perfect). Alex said that it had to be after med school graduation. That gave us one weekend. DONE

    Ahh, short hair! Love it! Although let’s be honest, anything would look good on you. I sometimes miss spring in the South, too. There was this one tree that I used to park by every morning when I’d to to the gym when I was at Clemson and it would start blooming every year around late February/early March. It was my favorite little sign of spring. To me, May in Atlanta is all about the East Atlanta Beer Fest. My hubby and I used to go every year when he lived in the ATL and that is definitely something I miss a lot!

    Your mommy is so excited that you are coming home (to the South, the lake, Atlanta, all of the places)

    Before I left on Tuesday, to come back to Mexico, we had a couple of warm days–like around 80. Immediately all of the flowering crab-apple trees just popped out.
    For those unfamiliar with these trees–they are big and have white blossoms which rain down all over everywhere-but they are the first to bloom— so we know spring is coming.

    Pollen is a delight, particularly if you have the really heavy yellow stuff. We had a black dog, that turned green, my black car turns green and everything has a volley yellow glow,….oh, wait, that just pollen!
    All of the horses and our crazy lab, Galen, are just dropping their hair in big blobs everywhere. If Galen wags his tail, which he does a lot, his hair just falls out of his body.
    We will clean Brian up before you see him. His hair no longer sheds on its own, and he looks like a dirty, white, hairy yak. He is so proud of that!

    Peonies! I love spring because that is when my favorite flower is in season!
    We got married in July and I wanted Peonies so badly, but they were gone, gone πŸ™‚
    Have a great weekend!!

      We didn’t have that many peonies from my memory growing up. Or maybe we did and I don’t remember! But so many people loooove them!

      When we cut it last time (that picture) it was just shy of 8 inches shorter. Still not enough to donate. I’m sure you are VERY ready to cut yours!

    I always get so excited for spring! I love how the sun seems brighter in the spring (expect when we get alot of rain…I don’t like that part!) I hate that I was back to wearing boots and a winter coat yesterday, but hopefully now we will moving towards shorts weather! I am also looking forward to flip flops

    Also, spring means we’re closer to patio weather! My favorite!

    I personally feel vitimized that there isn’t a huge picture of my face here for your Friday favourites…scrap that, LIFE favourites.

    You need to teach me about American seasons. All I remember is that it’s effing hot in NYC in Summer. And effing cold in Winter.
