The weather has dipped back into the teens, but our early taste of balmy weather has me thinking spring! I love the refreshed feeling that comes with the rainy, warming weather of April and May. There are so many parts of spring that make me happy, from the chicks at Tractor Supply to the days warm enough to take a run in shorts.
Buffalo has so many great restaurants with rooftop patios and outdoor seating that goes to waste for half the year. The first weekend that outdoor tables are set feels like a city-wide party filled with string lights and gorgeous sunsets. This spring, I’m excited to enjoy the patios at Templeton Landing, Deep South Taco and A. B. V.
Last Wednesday I stopped at Tractor Supply solely to check on the chick situation. There weren’t any chicks yet, which meant the time I spent on the drive there crafting an Instagram caption was for naught. But lucky for me and my springtime obsessions with all cute little animals (baby cows, baby bunnies and baby goats 😍), Tractor Supply is both on the way home from work and right next to the gym!
Warmer weather makes me want to never step foot on a treadmill again. I can’t wait until a few miles on the canal doesn’t leave my nose feeling like it’s going to fall off. I know Murphy is excited for days that stay lighter longer so he gets a walk more than once a week. The first few weeks of open windows, open barn doors and no winter coat are always welcome, especially in Buffalo.
While some parts of spring cleaning aren’t so fun, I love taking everything off the shelves to dust and putting photos, books and keepsakes back in a completely new way. I stopped at Target yesterday for face wash and walked out with half the homeware department, I swear. I then spent hours changing out stacks of books and frames. My next step is printing new images for all these frames; currently, I’m looking at a cute child I’ve never seen before eating a dripping ice cream cone.
