Must Have Items for Spring

The sun has finally come out here in the Seattle area. It's crazy how a little sunshine can lift people's spirits and I immediately start to think of how I can spend the maximum amount of time outside that I can. I've collected some of my favorite must have items for spring. I've got a great book for you to read, a refreshing drink for you to try and some other fun items that will lift your spirits and get you ready for long days, warm sun and family time.

It's no secret that I love to travel. My passport is one of my favorite possessions. Dayspring has an amazing collection that they call Better Together.  They have partnered with Village Artisan to create some pretty amazing products that will have an impact both locally and globally. Village Artisan pioneered the fair trade principles of putting people and sustainable development alongside sustainable profits. It's transformed lives of individuals, families and whole communities. 

Here are a few of my favorite things from that collection. Go check it out. I know you will find something that you love.

I just finished this book. It was a great read if you like historical fiction. I'm always looking for book suggestions so if you have one, please don't hesitate to comment. I'm always looking to fill up that spring reading list!

I'm a HUGE fan of sweet tea. This is my new favorite. It's called Southern Breeze. There are zero {as in none, ziltch, nada} calories and the sweetener is already in the bag. It's easy and delicious and I'm going to be sipping on it all spring.

I know 70 degrees may sound too cold to go to the beach, but it's totally not if you live in the Pacific Northwest! I am crushing hard on this huge round aztec beach towel. It would be perfect for a picnic blanket or beach blanket {because it's family sized} and then you can wrap yourself up in it and use it as a towel. It's dreamy.

Spring means longer days which means more hours the kids are looking for things to do. My youngest son loves getting these Tinker Crates {perfect for ages 9-16} in the mail. They have a monthly featured activity that is science, engineering and technology based and all the supplies you need to create it. 

My artistic daughter loves the Doodle Crates. These kits have everything young makers need to create, try out a new skill and create a super fun DIY project that is their very own.

Speaking of creativity, I ordered this Inspire journaling Bible for my daughter for Christmas. I've been waiting for it to release and am looking forward to getting it this week. You know those gifts you buy for someone else but you secretly want one? Yeah, that's this. I want one myself because this whole Bible journaling trend looks like so much fun. If you don't know what I'm talking about, google it. It's amazing.

I was out shopping today. We are having family pictures done {haven't done that in about five years!} and my oldest son will be having his senior pictures done at the same time. I started to get pretty convinced that I need to pick up a pair of overalls for spring. I lived in overalls twenty years ago and am pretty sure I could live in a pair now. This pair is pretty cute. What do you guys think about the overall trend?

After you spend all your day outside, I love to relax in the evening with Netflix. Seriously if you aren't streaming Netflix, you aren't living. Here are a few of my favorites that I watched this month. Good stuff. I'm sort of a fan of the documentaries as you can see from The Barkely Marathon {holy cow it's a crazy race!} and Meet the Patels {seriously adorable and enlightening}

Alright friends, that is my must have list for spring. Now excuse me, I'm heading outside to soak up some sun.
