Spring is here and it feels like one big collective exhale for many of us. The relief of sunshine, the whiffs of blooming flowers, the excitement of shedding our layers for breezier clothes, and the allure of a fresh batch of colorful produce are among some of April’s biggest delights. While we welcome these familiar seasonal shifts with open arms every year, spring 2021 holds the promise of even bigger change. As we reach a turning point in the pandemic and vaccination becomes more of a reality, many of us are finally beginning to decompress after what feels like a year of holding our breath.

In short, entering a new season has never felt more exciting.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m diving cannonballing into this new chapter, and I’ve got a lot of plans for soaking up springtime in all its glory this year. Looking for things to do in April? Put on your transitional sweater, grab some tulips, hang up your hammock, and get ready to celebrate flowers and sunshine with this spring bucket list. Also before we begin I need to share this post from Oprah—it’s my spring 2021 energy. Enjoy!
