Bigger and Brighter
I’ve grown accustomed to truly experiencing all four seasons in the Midwest, however, I adore the beginning of Spring and love everything Summer has to offer. The sun shines bigger and brighter. The flowers are in full bloom. The vacations have been planned, and it’s time to pull out the sandals! With the change and turn of the seasons, it’s also necessary to make small, refreshing, and inexpensive updates to your home.
It might seem daunting and overwhelming as you truly don’t know where to begin. I have found that starting with smaller projects and working your way up will lead to a feeling of accomplishment. Warning: Once you start making updates, it becomes addictive!
Over the years I have dibbled and dabbled in my fair share of DIY projects. The results are the most rewarding, so when it’s all said and done it is worth it and then some.
Often not receiving the credit they deserve, small projects are just as important as bigger projects. Sharing my favorite, simple, and budget-friendly spring refreshers. Get your mind into this, and as always, have fun with it. Don’t forget to turn the music up because it just makes everything better.
Not only was that easy, but your house also smells amazing, you feel refreshed and a sense of accomplishment has covered you like the warm afternoon sun!
There never seems to be enough time or hours in the day to accomplish everything on your list. For some, our days start early and end late. Great balance is time for family, an efficient and productive work day, personal time for yourself, and carving out just a bit of your life for actual fun. It doesn’t typically happen this way, but with all things, after a little practice and patience, you can create the environment and space that makes you happy.
