In many parts of North America, households are getting ready for the Spring season with new decor and a fresh start. Adios to the long cold days of winter and hello to warmer weather; more time spent outdoors and lots of new projects to tackle around the house. Many people begin their Spring cleaning, de-cluttering their spaces and getting their house in tip top shape for the upcoming summer months. It is a wonderful time of year.
For us Costa Ricans (yup, I am officially a Tica by now), we don't need to get ready for Spring as we get Spring like weather year round. But for me, the expat, it's fun to pretend Spring is in the air with new decor and a refresh of old decor around the house. Fresh new plants and spring florals add pops of color everywhere, bright colors that bring a smile to my face. Springtime signifies natures re-birth; trees get their leaves back and new life is apparent all around. It's the time emerge anew and start again in celebration of the Spring season. Happy Spring.
