It’s been a long winter, hasn’t it? Punxsutawney Phil should really watch his back.
I don’t know about you, but I could use a few signs of spring. I’ve had it with all the Polar Vortices and their impending snow-doom warnings. And now that I’m on maternity leave and cooped up in the house for the better part of the day – well, let’s just say I needed a good dose of sunshine.
So I went on the hunt for some signs of spring last week at a Goodwill® store in Virginia that I’d never visited. The racks of bright colors and rows of tank tops that greeted me cheered me up more than you can imagine. It was a great reminder that it won’t be too long until I can retire my fleeces and snow boots in favor of light jackets and swingy, spring dresses.
Are you itching for the great outdoors? Get in the spirit and snag a great tennis racquet, or a baseball themed tie to wear to spring training at Goodwill! Already planning your epic Fourth of July party and need some decorations? Head to – well, you know where.
After browsing a while and getting a good dose of thrift store sunshine, I left with a new shirt for my husband that will look perfect on him while he’s grilling out back, a cute cherry blossom patterned shirt for myself, and some brand new, bright pink ballet flats I can wear to skip along in the sunshine soon.
I left feeling like a new woman and Goodwill was all it took. If you’re weary of winter’s chill, too, take a trip to your local store and get a good dose of sunshine for yourself!
