It's here - put a SPRING in your step!


Yippee, it is here, Spring arrived today!
There is something about this beautiful season, the blossoms on the tree's, the birds starting to chirp a little earlier in the morning (not always so happy about that one), beautiful sunshine with a lot more warmth to it, social bbq catch ups............and the list goes on.
You awaken feeling so much better when the sun is shining, it means we don't have to be stuck indoors as much.
We celebrated the beginning of Spring by having a coffee on the deck at a cafe called Daisy's in Sorrento.  I highly recommend this place, the views of the bay are to die for.  You could sit there for ages just watching the world go by.  This place used to be known as Over Easy - it now has new owners and has been revamped with a hit of Melbourne coffee culture to it.  FINALLY we have somewhere in Sorrento which makes a fantastic coffee!!!!
We then wandered the streets checking out the beautiful houses.  There is still so many undiscovered nooks and crannies that we are yet to explore.
Will then had to head off to work, so I ventured out into the garden.  It was serene, where we live, we have hardly any permanent neighbours.  I love a spot of gardening, especially when the sun is shining.  I find it therapeutic, weird I know!
Once I had picked Cooper up from creche in the afternoon, I took a drive up to the apple orchard in Red Hill. This drive is always peaceful, it reminds me of driving through the Dandenongs.  The sun was glistening through the tree's, I felt as though I was a part of a Hollywood film set for a romantic comedy!
What a beautiful start to Spring......roll on sunshine and good times with family and friends.

How did you spend the first day of Spring?


  1. Sounds like a lovely day! I love the peninsula, and the fresh produce available locally.
    I had a lovely ride on my horse, in the beautiful sunshine in a t-shirt, was perfect!

  2. Nothing like a bit of exploring... and spring makes it soooo much more inviting! Glad to see you loving the little things! You outlook is always inspiring! xx

  3. What a lovely bright, happy post Buffy. I couldn't agree with you more, Spring just seems to breathe life into the every day. I function better, achieve more and feel chirpier in general when the sun shines. I struggle with Winter somewhat. Your day sounds idyllic... unfortunately my first day of Spring was spent at work, but that's ok, I only have to work 2 days per week, not too bad. Keep enjoy that sunshine and relaxation Buffy :o) xo
