Finally, Flowers!

Finally, Flowers!

Hello!! Spring and autumn are the seasons when your favorite Lil Red blogger thrives. I live for not too hot/not too cold weather as I don’t do well in extreme summer temps and I am a huge freeze baby come winter! While I love the weather that comes with spring and fall, I love the way the world looks even more; Blooming flowers and trees coming back to life and leaves changing colors and Halloween decor. While driving this past week, I have noticed lots of pretty spring flowers popping up. And, finally on Friday, flowers were in my parents’ yard too. It made me so happy!

After a winter that felt like an eternity due to crap weather and a massive amount of stress, these past few days of true springtime have hit different and in the best way. Although it has been technically spring on the calendar, I don’t consider it to be spring until the weather and the outside world reflects it. Seeing the sun and feeling its warmth, brisk winds, and new life growing all around has been so invigorating and healing. While everything still isn’t awesome in my world, it makes it a bit easier to go about the day with a newfound pep in my step.

I look forward to seeing flowers in my parents’ yard every year because it is a perfect reminder of better times ahead. It’s hard not to smile and feel hopeful when tiny blooms and bursts of color are making their way onto the scene. It is also a great time to reflect on how flowers grow. Despite heavy rainfalls, grey days, and unstable temperatures, flowers still grow and turn into something beautiful when they open up towards the sun. It’s a great metaphor to help myself remember that when things absolutely suck, there is still going to be a light at the end of the tunnel. ❤

I have been waiting for springtime basically since winter began and all I have to say is: Bring it on. Here’s to warm days, birds chirping, and flowers blooming everywhere!

What is your favorite flower? What is your favorite part about the spring? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

  1. I love Spring! It has been so rainy here in the UK recently I can’t wait for the sun to make an appearance. My favourite thing to see in Spring is the Cherry Blossom tree in our garden blooming. So pretty.

  2. Spring is the best time to travel anywhere in India because the weather is not too cold nor too hot. My favourite activity in spring is going to my favourite beach destination – Goa. Chilling out with my friends at the beach, eating fresh seafood, drinking fresh coconut water.

      • It’s somewhere between 24°C to 30°C. If that’s very hot temperature for you then you should know the normal temperature in summer around here goes till 45°C. 🥵

      • 24 sounds perfect but anything hotter is a big no from me!!!!! As I get older, I noticed that my tolerance for heat has gone down significantly – it makes me so lightheaded and the daily medications I have to take probably don’t help either!
