All About Spring

Every single Spring, I forget how beautiful it is. Summer + Fall by far win as my favorite seasons (because Spring is such a teaser! And Winter…no chance) but right now on this day, Spring is my new fav : )

MatBlog

Overnight oats for the win!

I walked out onto the porch and my heart jumped into my chest when I saw a pile of wood. I thought some part of the porch had collapsed in the storm last nigh!! But luckily it’s just Matt’s garden bed supplies!

I’m working on Great Harvest marketing/web things all morning and have my talk to prepare for tonight! But I absolutely MUST fit in a walk – it’s too nice of a day.

The first picture of the trees is beautiful! :) I love the spring. The flowers are so pretty this time of year. Overnight oats are the best! I haven’t had them in such a long time. Good luck with your speech!

I was just thinking to myself how I never consider spring to be my favorite season, but I fall in love with spring every time I see new blossoms and color popping up everywhere! Phew, glad your porch is okay – that would have been quite a scare.

I do not mind the winter, but love fall and summer. This year, however, I wanted spring to come really bad, since the snow would not come. This has been an unpredictable year for weather thus far–at least where I am at.

I agree. Winter is the worst. This spring in Atlanta is turning out to be gorgeous! I don’t remember it ever being so beautiful!

my breakfast was almost identical this morning! it was delicious. fall and summer are definitely my top favorite seasons as well! so far, it’s been a beautiful spring here in northern UT though!

I love the transition of summer into fall: ideal temperatures and the color change of the leaves is beautiful!

I always love going for a walk in early spring. The new flowers are always so beautiful!

Summer is by far my favourite season. I know a lot of people like fall but here, fall tends to turn to winter VERY quickly so to me, it’s a bit of a sign that things are only going to get colder! I’m a summer kinda girl through and through!

Haha – I would have freaked out at that pile of wood! Glad it was supplies. :)

What a pretty pic of the Spring goodness around you!

I would’ve freaked out at the wood too!

I love spring. I just picked up running and I love it so far. What times of the day is it best to run from your experience?

Reply

13 KathEats March 29, 2012 at 8:42 am

Anytime before lunch. My stomach was fine to run first thing and after breakfast, but the second it had vegetables in there my run quality decreased dramatically. You’ll have to figure out what works for yours! I love early morning runs in the summer when it’s balmy and the sun is just rising :)

14 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat March 29, 2012 at 8:26 am

Looks like a beautiful morning there! I’m sure you’ll find time to walk – you seem to fit in 100 things in one day!

15 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats March 29, 2012 at 8:33 am

I’m glad you’re having such good weather! It’s a little chilly here in Chicago today, but it’s supposed to warm up this weekend again! Although honestly I’d prefer the chill because I have my first half marathon and I don’t want it to get too hot!

16 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning March 29, 2012 at 8:38 am

I’m definitely a fan of summer, more than anything else (well, I think all public school teachers are!)- but spring is awesome. I’m a big baseball fan, so I’m getting all geeked up for the season to be underway!
Enjoy your walk today- I’m hoping to find time for one too!

how in the world do you figure out the wed design stuff, Kath? Is it all self-taught? … I just read about wed design for two hours last night :: feeling more educated but less knowledgeable than EVER

Reply

18 KathEats March 29, 2012 at 8:44 am

Do you mean about blog design? It’s hard and scary, but everything I’ve learned has been trial and error. You also need the help of some design tools – from Picasa (free) to Photoshop ($$$)

Reply

19 Jasper Naomi @ crunchylittlebites March 29, 2012 at 9:19 am

I meant marketing/web GH stuff. but you’re totally right about the blog design, too. I was told to be brave and pick up Photoshop as well as light room if I wanted to “go anywhere” in the design world. we shall see :)

20 KathEats March 29, 2012 at 9:22 am

Ahhh gotcha. Our website is pretty easy to update since we moved hosts. And we use Constant Contact for marketing. It all just takes time to do but it isn’t hard!

It was a GORGEOUS morning (I guess it still is, I’ve been up for a while and I forgot for a sec that it’s still morning).
There’s no chance that porch is coming down, Tate was just commenting on how re-inforced it is!
Walk me to the clinic at 2:30?

Overnight Oats won over for me today too. I hadn’t had them in a while and BOY were they delicious :)

PS – I legitimately laughed outloud when you were showing your “to-do” list on Baby KERF and it just said “everything” hahaha.

I feel like every season I’m in feels like my favorite– at least with spring, summer and fall…no shot on winter winning that one for me, either.

Fall is my favorite too. I love Spring, but the allergy stuff is really not fun. I hope you have a great day Kath!

30 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles March 29, 2012 at 9:06 am

It really looks like spring where you are! I truly love Spring…watching everything seemingly come back to life, starting my herb garden, clearing out my perennials…and my birthday!

31 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio March 29, 2012 at 9:16 am

I completely agree— spring is such a tease. I always forget how awesome it is, though I hate the allergies!

What a gorgeous view! I love spring, but fall definitely is my favorite! I’ve never been one big on summer because it was always so humid in the midwest. That’s not to say I don’t LIKE it because the warm weather is always nice, but spring and fall are my favs! :)

I really love Spring days when the grass is green, flowers are sprouting, and the air smells clean. Unfortunately there is none of that here right now. It’s a cold, gray day.

Hooray for gardens! What are you planting? I can’t wait to start mine. Still too early in NH!

Yes, I love the fresh-ness you feel in the spring!
It feels like it’s the “beginning” when the plants start to grow green leaves, flowers bloom, etc!

I just want to say that I have never seen a blog that I look up to so much. I’m studying nutrition at the moment and I absolutely love everything about your blog and life. I hope that I can have one as amazing as this one day. For now I only have my instagram! Keep up this amazing work.
