Spring Cleaning

Hey Y’all! Well it happened again – the world is getting away from me and I’m neglecting my blog! We’ve been just so crazy busy and I’m almost having trouble pushing pause to take a breath. We’ve been having so much fun though that it’s been easy to get caught up.

While Vermont has been having crazy weather, snowy, cold, rainy, warm, it’s all over the place – it still smells like Spring. With the time change it’s of course darker in the morning, but still light till well after 7 now. I’m having dreams of my gardens and green grass and summer. It’s coming! It’ll be here before we know it, especially with as fast as time is spinning by. I’m already making my dream sheet for the summer. The hubs and I do this every year and it is one of my favorite things! We write down all of the different projects we want to do in or around the house, and also the things (bigger price tag) that we might want to buy this year. Number one on the list for me this year is a new stone patio, fire pit, and garden area on the bank above our house near my “graduation” tree. My favorite place to sit is on the bank above our house and just admire the beautiful Vermont landscape, our cute house, and my flower gardens. If only the two feet of snow would melt so we could get to work!

In the midst of our busy few months I’ve found myself feeling like I’m in a funny place with some things and it’s made me really reflect on what different relationships mean to me and what I want out of them. And it’s all made me think bigger picture. I think it’s important to know what you want out of something that you’re putting energy into. If you aren’t getting it then maybe it’s not worth your energy. I have so many wonderful things in my life to focus on and put my energy into, I want to be putting it into things and people that are deserving of it. Spring is always a good time to clean. Clean the house, clean the car, clean up and reevaluate your goals, and priorities. Some of that comes organically, some of it comes with time, and some of it is hard work. I’m working on my spring cleaning, prioritizing, and making sure I’m putting my energy where it most valued and where I can get the most from the investment. Have you ever felt like this? How do you handle it? How do you prioritize your time and energy across relationships and life?

Funny how writing our summer goals list feel like it ties perfectly into refocusing my energy across my life.

Deep breaths! Big smiles! Big cups of coffee! Choose Happy!
