If you would have told me a few years ago that I would be picking Spring over Summer I know for a fact I wouldn’t have believed you. I used to constantly rave about Summer and couldn’t wait for it to arrive but now I have officially converted to the season of hope and new beginnings!
Of course every season has its own perks and each bring something unique when they’re around – there’s no doubt about that. However I think we all have a preference and for me Spring is the best out of them all.
Speaking of the best, here are my top 5 reasons for loving Spring and why I’m going to be making the most of it while it lasts.
Brighter mornings and longer days
I love the fact that when I get up in the mornings it’s bright! It doesn’t even need to be sunny for me to enjoy it, I just like that I’m no longer waking up or travelling home in the dark. Also the evenings are so much nicer now and I feel like I want to get stuff done. It’s definitely a strong motivator for me to be more productive.
The flowers are blooming
I have this sudden obsession with taking photos of flowers lately and can you blame me? It’s their time of year to flourish and brighten up our surroundings! It adds that extra bit of colour too which is always lovely especially when you’re stuck in-between tall, dark buildings nearly every weekday. Mother Nature knows how to spoil us!
Better photo opportunities
If you’re a blogger like myself or someone who enjoys photography you will understand my pain when it comes to having to take photos in a short space of time due to the lack of natural daylight. But when Spring comes along, it gives us more time to capture those perfect photo moments without needing those LED lights or reflectors to help us get there. I will forever be grateful to Spring for making that part of my everyday blogger life that little bit easier!
More bank holidays
This may sound like a odd one but Spring has the most bank holidays out of all the seasons. We’ve probably got Easter to thank for that (YAY for all the chocolate eggs) plus who doesn’t enjoy those extra days off work to enjoy in the sun and relax? Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain this time.
The weather has a good happy medium
Without going into more detail than I need to, I struggle a lot with our British Summer weather with its gross humidity levels, especially living in London it can get close to unbearable with there being no breeze to cool you down. I like the sunshine and the hot temperatures just like everyone else does, I just don’t want to have to sacrifice my comfortability for a barely noticeable tan.
