First day of spring

Happy first day of spring! We have had a wonderful day of spending time together and having fun. We started the day at this wonderful little breakfast place which has some very unique and yummy food offerings. I had been there once before for work but Dave had never been so I suggested we try it out. It may very well be the best breakfast I have ever had. Seriously. I had a yummy breakfast sandwich with a soft pretzel roll filled with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and a sausage patty, served with a side of smoked cheddar hollandaise & house hash browns. Dave and I also shared a Graceland pancake which is a buttermilk pancake griddled with fresh bananas, topped with peanut butter cream, whipped butter and bacon caramel sauce. It sounds kinda funky but it was to die for! We will definitely be going back there again!


After brunch, and some resting time to digest our yummy food, we headed out to a state park to do a nice hike and find a geocache. The weather was beautiful and it was so nice to get outside and get some exercise. After our hike we drove around the state park and took in the views of the earth waking up from winter and even checked out some potential camping sites for when the weather gets a little warmer.


We finished off the day buying my annual first day of spring bouquet. I started buying myself flowers on the first day of spring back when I was a freshman in college, had no boyfriend and wanted an excuse to get flowers. I’ve done it every year since, not because I need an excuse to get flowers, but because it is a nice way to celebrate the changing of the season. And who doesn’t like a nice bouquet of fresh flowers?

Do you have any traditions on the first day of spring? I hope you all had a great day!
