Spring bucket list

Images via: one // two // three // four
We welcomed the first day of spring today, and I honestly couldn't be more excited. I've just about had it with this cold, gray, sad and dreary winter, and I'm ready to embrace the new season  with every fabulous thing it entails:
   * longer days = more sunshine = a huge improvement for my mood and my happiness levels
   * overhauling my closet, throwing away my sad winter uniform of jeans, sweaters and ankle boots and embracing skirts, dresses and high heels again
   * throwing my windows wide open and letting the fresh breeze in
   * seeing the trees bloom
   * gorging myself on salads made of first fresh produce scavenged on the farmers markets...

... and the list goes on. This season makes me incredibly happy, not least because I celebrate my birthday in May. There's just something so special about this time of year, when the nature wakes up from its winter sleep, when the beautiful flowers pop up at every corner and the opportunities for dreaming and making new things happen seem ever present. To me, spring means happiness.

Of course, this is also the perfect time to come up with another bucket list. Putting together these seasonal bucket lists is always so much fun, and this one has been easier than ever. Just another proof how excited I am for this new season of my life to begin. So without further ado, these are the things and activities I'm most looking forward to in the following three months. I'm going to...

Celebrate my own 30th and my dad's 60th birthday.

Buy and style fresh grocery store flowers each week.

Plant an indoor herb garden and then benefit from it all throughout spring and summer.

Try at least 10 new recipes built around eggs.

Take a flower arranging class.

Plan and execute my balcony makeover.

Update my home decor with seasonal, spring elements.

Go for the Vienna Philharmonic outdoor concert in Schonbrunn, Austria.

Visit the gardening fair that takes place each year in April, and buy all the plants I can carry.

Update and reorganize my closet - put away all the sweaters and coats, and bring forward my favorite skirts, dresses and ballet flats.

Buy a lemon tree (a would-be cousin for my mandarin tree), and learn how to take care of it.

Learn to paint with watercolors.

Plant edible flowers in our garden and then experiment with them in my kitchen.

Make a spring wreath for my front door. Looking at this beauty, I think tulips are the way to go!

What are your plans for this spring? What are you looking forward to the most?
