Spring Bucket List 2019

Well...winter is officially over and spring has arrived! I am so thankful! 🌷

Normally, I'm content in any season (fall is my favorite, then spring, then winter, then summer), but, this winter seemed like the longest winter ever and we didn't even get that bad of weather compared to most of the country! I'm just glad that it's over and that spring is finally here! Yeah! 🌸

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22).

Here are some of the things that I'm looking forward to this spring and hope to accomplish throughout the course of the season...

1. Write my spring bucket list

3. Observe the full moon (the third and final "supermoon" of 2019) on the spring equinox 🌕
4. Celebrate Purim by reading the book of Esther, eating hamentashen, and watching One Night With The King
5. Schedule eye exams for dh and I (get new glasses)
