Spring Happiness in Maastricht








It's taken a while but it seems that spring is finally settling down with us in Maastricht. After a long winter temperatures are beginning to rise, the sun shines and the sky is an amazing light shade of blue, flowers are blooming and newly-born animals are taking their first steps on the greenest grass. Despite my penchant for autumn colours and winter snow I have to recognise that this sudden spring boom has put a big smile on my face. Perhaps it's the sun on my face or perhaps the ballet flats on my feet but I am defintely happy that spring is finally here and I'm looking forward to more sunny days! So, here's a little list of 'happy spring things'.

Early sunshine on my window
Dresses and ballet flats
Picnic for two
Walking barefoot on the grass
Laying on the sun
Home-made ice tea
Strawberries
Daytrips to the coast

Just some ideas, what about you? What makes you happy in spring?
Have a wonderful week!

    1. La verdad que yo tb espero que haya muchos días de sol porque son una gozada, aunque de momento agradezco igualmente los días nublados que hacen más fácil quedarse estudiando :)
      Espero que tú también estés disfrutando una primavera estupenda en Extremadura!

  4. I am definitely more of a fall/winter girl too, but I agree with you, it is hard to beat gorgeous spring blooms like those. So pretty! And yes, strawberries. I can live with summer as long as there are plenty of strawberries to be had. :)

  8. La vida siempre es mejor en primavera, sobretodo las temperaturas y el hecho de no llevar 15.000 capas una encima de otra, aunque en Valencia se resiste hace frio y viento infernal.
    Preciosas las fotos de los arboles de flores rosas.
    besito Irene
