In The Sun

I am writing this post hoping that it will send everyone of my northern friends a little sun. We have been enjoying the warmth of the spring sun for the past week. It even got so warm that I wore a tank top and no shoes a few days. It basically was like summer to this northern girl.

More than anything, I think this weather has made me grateful for sunlight. The feeling of waking up with the window open, birds chirping, the motion of the day outside, and the sun streaming in over the white bedding is the most natural joy I can imagine. Everything is just better in the sun, isn’t it? Even a simple lunch downtown turns into some sort of mini vacation for just that moment or even getting the chance to enjoy the day working on the porch.

I finally got to break out some of my new favorite pieces i never imagine would leave my closet this early in the year. I actually had got this jumper for another trip, and it will totally be coming with me on the plane to Spain this month. This is my second jumpsuit I have and every time I wear it, I’m probably not alone in this, I always find it hilarious that you basically have to get completely undressed to go to the bathroom. Ha. However, it did feel good to test out a few pieces I have held in the closet specifically to take with us to Spain and Portugal.

The sun has, in short been life giving the last few days. The longer days have left me more inspired and have pushed us to take a lot of lingering things off the to-do list. I always forget how important those wonderful rays can feel after so many cloudy and cold days. Oh seasons, you are quite a wonderful thing.

Happy Thursday friends! I hope you either have had a chance to enjoy the sun or this sun lands on your shoulders very soon.

  1. As a fellow Michigan girl now enjoying lovely sunny weather (in Central California), I can totally relate to this. I love Michigan so much during the summer, but I pretty much hate it with an intense fury during the winters 🙂

  2. It really is like a whole new world now that the days are a little longer! I’ve also felt so much more productive. It’s amazing how much the sun can affect our lives.

  3. ugh! yep… in Grand Rapids when I went to work the other day I was ecstatic that I saw some blades of grass! Then I came out of a 12 hour shift and we had 3 inches of fresh snow… Enjoy the sun!

  4. What an adorable jumpsuit! And those sandals are cute too. I’m still ready for it to get a little warmer here in Georgia, but it’s on it’s way! Enjoy the sun!

  5. ha! i love jumpsuits but between the getting naked to pee and taking the whole top off to breastfeed, mine are in the back of my closet for a while. loving these sunshiney photos! i’m glad the sun is shining in other parts. i don’t feel so bad for hogging it all out here in socal 😉


    I am thinking spring far too early up here in TC: I rode my bike to work with ski googles and three layers of clothes because it was 2 degrees out. It’s so hard to wait for the warmth up here, but you’re right…sunshine is a wonderful thing. I know the wait will be worth it. Thanks for sharing the sunny south with us!
