Bring the outside in! Adding indoor plants into your home decor is a great way to bring spring colors and vibes into your life.

If you can find indoor plants that have color, you've found the jackpot! And spending the weekend in your favorite top is a bonus. My favorite that I will carry with me everywhere in the Spring is this orange sweater.

Find new outdoor adventures!

Refresh your outlook on your city and explore like a tourist! Find historical sites, new parks and festivals! If you are in San Antonio, the San Antonio Missions are a great place to start. Not only do you get active, but you learn more of the history of the city.

Start with small organizing! Junk drawers? The small tools in your garage? Your first aid kit? Tackle organizing these small projects and you'll be energized for the big ones.
