I can see three glorious inches of green leaves pushing through the earth where the Iris plants are in my flowerbed. A few early daffodils are already blossomed in all their yellow finery. The mated pair of robins that return to the tree in our backyard every year are flitting about repairing their nest. Witnessing the renewal and regrowth of spring reminds me there is always opportunity on the horizon, for both the creation of the brand new and the restoration of the old.
Speaking of new, I’m trying something different on This Michigan Life this month. I’m choosing a theme, then creating content around it. Most of the time, the topic won’t smack you in the face. For instance, I don’t plant to write a 20 post series on how to organize your spice cabinet. *YAWN* Just typing that sentence makes me want to take a long, spring nap. Rather, the topic will be somewhat broad, but able to be interpreted in a number of ways.
Since it is early spring, this month we’ll take a look at the word refresh, and how it relates to everything from food, to travel to the latest trends. The first post of the month is already up. It features a kid’s Easter craft that uses favorite classic candies with a new twist. Be sure to follow This Michigan Life on Facebook, or even better, subscribe so that you get all the latest posts sent straight to your inbox. I hope you’ll come along on the journey as we celebrate spring!
Now, let’s get started. What does REFRESH mean to you? Tell me in the comments.
