My favorite part of spring is the sunshine and warmer weather! I live in Minnesota - so the first hint of spring is a great thing!

minna said...

Ahhh... what's not to love? My favorite spring thing (as lame as it is) is cleaning out my closet! I banish all blacks and grays and bust out my favorite wild floral print dresses. I can't wait til spring!

Madelynnnn said...

I love Spring! I don't know what I love the most....it may be the rain, something about rain is so comforting. I may be the ability to bring in a new outfit because winter is finally over, or it may that I can finally wear flip flops! Either way, I can't wait for Spring, Winter is bringing me down.

Vanessa said...

I love shorty shorts, mini skirts, light weight blouses, tank tops, letting my toes show again in cute flip flops, french pedicures...ahhh I've got spring fever bad!
Love
Vanessa

Hailey said...

those few days when all the flowers start coming back to life - right before they burst into color!

lynlock said...

Everything! (Except the rain.) The first time it's warm enough to open the windows, at home and in the car, and just feel that warm months are on their way. The moment that I realize that the trees all have green leaves and the flowers have bloomed. And that I can finally lose the heavy layers and just go with a t-shirt, cardigan, jeans, and sandals.

My favourite time of Spring are the blooming flowers and the sun! The night time where it's breezy and nice. Where you get to wear fun and colourful clothes. Go for nice runs and also enjoy the rainy days that are there!

whitney said...

i love being able to wear tank tops again!

Dainty Kate said...

My favorite thing about spring is that it's a time about action...new growth, springing forward, spring cleaning...We lull a bit during the winter months. Spring is about getting into action in fresh, beautiful ways.

jdl2005 said...

My favorite Spring thing is blooming forsythia, with its tiny yellow blooms it heralds Spring's arrival in the sunniest, cheeriest color in the spectrum! Hurray for spring.

Anna said...

my favorite thing about spring is that there will be no more snow!!

domestikatedlife said...

Living in Boston, I love how the city gets rejuvenated when the winter finally thaws.

Everyone comes out of the woodwork, and it's like the entire city is in a good mood!

Dustjacket Attic said...

Great giveaway....my favorite part of Spring is putting the Winter clothes away and being able to dress in lighter pieces...without having to cover them with a coat!

The flowers, for sure. And the sunshine!

Terése said...

my favorite thing about spring is...when the winds blow that perfect breeze over your face and the scent of fresh cut grass picks you out of that mid-day slump--

tkarpoich@gmail.com

Kate said...

Sunshine, fresh air, t-shirts, easter egg hunts, bunnies invading my yard, longer days, going barefoot, making summer plans, grilling again.

desmondandbeatrice said...

my favorite thing about spring are new dresses and cute boots, long walks in warm air, longer days with later evenings, and tulips.

Rachel said...

i love the super clean crisp air, so fresh! i live in Santa Barbara so we have spring weather pretty often, but you still can't beat the real thing :)

Tifferlee83 said...

I live in the desert, but we still have spring. Just comes alive and everything smells so amazing!

{The Classy Woman} said...

Awesome giveaway!! Every since the Carly bag came out, I loved it, but couldn't to spend money on a new handbag. I also felt like it was meant for me because my nickname by my parents is Karly.

I love seeing gorgeous tulips emerge from the ground. I also love wearing lighter clothing and adding a bit more pretty pops of floral and pastels. :)

Are you kidding me - what a give away?!!

Spring is when both plants and people (my two favourite things) wake up and say 'ok, i'm ready - let's give this thing another whirl'

Mia D. said...

My favorite part of spring is that wonderful feeling of infinite opportunity that steals through you. I guess it's just the invigorating return of warm sunshine and the smell of green things growing -- but it always makes me think that anything is possible. :)

My favorite thing about spring has to be the flowers, the gentle sunshine, the cool evenings, the light chiffon dresses I'll be able to wear, the butterflies...
Ahh, looking forward to those days to come! :)

Heather K said...

I love spring because every thing starts new. I love that red hue the trees get before they start to bud. I love how the daffodiles poke their sprouts out even when there is still snow on the ground. Whats not to love....

Glinda said...

I love the feeling of renewal that spring brings; I love the smell of spring rain and the perfume that hangs in the air from the newly opened flowers...I love the longer sun-filled days...

Thank you :)

Kimberly said...

My favorite thing about spring is gardening!

girl, inspired said...

ooh that is such a fabulous giveaway! I would love to win that Coach bag! Keeping my fingers crossed!!

My favorite thing about spring is the warmer weather, it's such a high-makes me giddy!

Chelley Q said...

Spring leaves me breathless...from admiring the gorgeousness of Nature and from running around like a five-year-old due to a surge of sun-kissed Spring energy. It's my time to unwind, swing on a hammock in the garden and play 'count the butterflies'. What's not to love about Spring?

JennieDang said...

I love spring and not because I get to whip out the delicious, bright pops of color again, but because the beginning of spring always reminds me of the day that my high school sweet heart, now fiance, asked me to go on a "rendezvous" with him. (his pathetic, yet cute(!) way, of attempting to woo me when I was learning French.) hah! Good luck to everyone else, and thank you for the magnificent give-a-way.

AngelaMuir said...

I LOVE spring. Mostly because winter is over, but even more because it's a fresh new start. There is something about planting a garden and watching flowers bloom that makes you realize you can do anything you want!

Splendid Willow said...

What a wonderful and generous giveaway!

Spring... Hmmm. That is when miracles start to happen in my neighborhood! When bare branches start to get buds and you see hints of tiny pink and white blooms. When neighboors who quietly have been hiding behind scarves and hoods start smiling from ear to ear. When birds start chirping in symphony outside our kitchen nook. And when I personally start thinking about a new pair of lovely sun glasses and when I should start giving my oh so pale legs and sad toe nails some serious attention. Spring is wake up time!

Sophie said...

My favorite part of spring is, of course, that warmer weather is coming soon. The ground starts to thaw and I can start my garden again!

Christine said...

SPRING = RENEWAL (it's like new years all over again) + HOPE + ANTICIPATION.
...and that's the time of year when I met and fell in lust with my (now) husband, and also when we fell in love for real 2 years after that!
THANKS

Simply Luxurious said...

You are absolutely spoiling us. (And I love you for it! =))
My favorite thing about spring is the temperate weather and array of flowers coming into bloom. Oh, and I can't wait for my tulip tree (magnolia tree) to share it's yellow blooms with the neighborhood.
=)

Laura@BillyAngel said...

Oooohh, I just LOVE Spring. It is my absolutely most favorite time of the year. I love the newness and freshness of the season. I love the dewy mornings bathed in sunlight and I love the feeling of optimism it gives me. The birds singing, the flowers blooming, the early morning coffee....I could go on and on.

SoJo said...

What I love most about spring is nature coming out in full force to pay homage to God, the trees and flowers through their fantastic colours and the birds through their beautiful melodies.

Lindsay M said...

mornings have a glowy feel. The first signs of bulbs breaking the soil. Freshness of yellow and green. And, all of the gorgeous food: asparagus, baby lettuce, the first thoughts of strawberries. Can you tell I can't wait?
Best,
Lindsay M.

hmmm, the smell. the smell of spring, the ocean smells different, the grass, the dirt even! i thought i caught a tiny glimpse of that smell the other day (even though we still have snow on the ground here and there) but still, i think it was in the air :)

minna said...

Sandi said...

Teehee, this is silly, but I absolutely adore when the new spring collection at Aerie comes out for their panties and undergarments. My favourite colours are the fresh greens, yellows, purples and all the light lace and fun things come out to play! (I also love putting on sunglasses and flip flops once it gets a bit warmer!)
Ok, let's face it..I LOVE spring.

Tracy said...

Amazing give-away! I can't wait for spring. My favourite thing about spring after being closed up in the house all winter is to be able to open the windows and have that light fresh air blow through the house again. LOVE IT!

Anonymous said...

I best thing I love about spring is just after it rains, the whole world seems so fresh and new. It is that smell of the earth and promise of warmer weather to come. You look up, down and all around and there is just life everywhere waiting to burst out of their buds and bring color back into our world! It is an amazing time of year :)

erin said...

Feeling the sun on my face and seeing new green pop up.

SogniSorrisi said...

Only one thing? I love pretty much everything about spring. I love how the days are longer and I don't have to wear a scarf anymore. I love patio season and warm nights. I love the way you feel on those first few sunny, balmy days...glad to be alive.

Chic Coles said...

Grren grass and the first snow drops and crocus and then daffodils

After a looooong winter in Chicago, I can not wait for spring! I love the longer hours of daylight, the sunshine, the blooming flowers and trees...can't wait!

I love the longer, more productive days, sunshine-filled mornings, and the return of sweet birds and their songs...

I love the fresh new blooms on the flowers in my garden, the breeze that blows and gently rings my wind chimes, and sitting on the terrace sipping a cup of Madagascar Vanilla tea...

I love, love, love that Spring is a fresh, new beginning. It inspires me to don bright colors, declutter, and to stop and enjoy the flowers and the sunshine.

Awesome giveaway!!

Veronica said...

Not to sound cliche, but my favorite thing about Spring is the flowers in bloom. All those brilliant colors.

I love Coach!

Adrienne S. said...

I love that I can bright colors in spring, especially bright shoes and sandals. I have a pair of yellow flats I can't wait to wear.

Krista said...

My favourite thing about Spring is the smell of the rain. It represents a fresh new season with flowers and leaves starting to bloom, birds chirping and the crispness leaving the air. How can you not smile when running through puddles left by Spring rain???

Natalie said...

My favourite part about spring is how productive I become. There is nothing better than taking advantage of the extra hours of sunshine and feeling so energized; it is like a fresh beginning. When you look around there is nothing better than seeing the snow melt, buds on the trees and knowing that the smell of BBQing and great laughs on patios with friends will fill the air!

KH said...

My favorite thing about spring is seeing all the people in love, the weather, the flowers... I love EVERYTHING about spring but mostly everyone begins to come out again and you can see people holding hands and kids outside playing.

chasingfreedom said...

My favorite thing about spring is being able to go for runs without having to pile on the layers (used for winter running) or having to worry about over heating (as in the summer)! Bring on the sunny mild weather!

Anonymous said...

SPRING=OUT OF WINTER HIDING!! A girls fave time of year, she's prepares her wardrobe as every women does, excited to show off great fashion deals she bought in the Winter, and most of all a beautiful COACH CARLY BAG that matches just right with every outfit!! HAPPY SPRING!!

~ab said...

. . . being able to step outside with nothing on but a cute pair of jeans, some boots, a new knitted sweater, and some sunglasses.

My Paris Apartment said...

Spring is remembering opening day at Fenway Park, the first pedicure of summer with fuscia paint, and the fresh smell of a newly mowed lawn. Aah, thank you God.

Sweetwine and Snowflakes said...

My favorite thing about spring is the scent: breathing and filling your lungs with crisp air that has moved across the salty ocean and a field of apple blossoms to give you a breath so sweet you want to dance through the garden and forget the world exists.

melissanearandfar said...

What a great way to celebrate the most hopeful season -

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Jaime said...

The smell of freshly cut grass and morning dew and the morning sun reflecting off the water droplets, that's my favorite thing!

Alison said...

New life everywhere: trees budding, flowers poking their heads out of the ground, birds hatching, and people emerging out their winter cocoons to engage with the world.

AnnieB said...

I love planting flowers around the yard and entertaining outside! It gets awfully hot in the summer time, so the spring is the best time, in my opinion, to really enjoy being outdoors.

"Haute Girl" said...

Fisrt, I am happy to be alive to see another spring!!! i just love the smell of all the new flowers, grass etc. The feel of warmer weather!!! All the joy i get from shopping for new spring clothes! Its just a hppier time!!!

jessica said...

I love that almost simultaneously, as the flowers spring up all around, so do all the cheery colors in fashion. Hooray for pink!

JenRem said...

My favorite part about spring is the rebirth of the world. I always feel like everything goes into hibernation in winter and when spring comes it brings all the beautiful back into the world. Might sound weird but it's just how I feel :)

hello sweet life said...

i love being able to be a girly girl again! skirts, heels, silk blouses, and pretty hair. no more hat hair, triple layers, winter boots and slush!
