Spring Excitement

By: Julia Thayer

The Spring equinox is Wednesday, March 20 this year. Spring is always an exciting time for me. It can be stressful because of finals and trying to keep your motivation for school up but there are lots of thrilling things I love about Spring.

Here are the top five things I’m looking forward to this Spring!


      1. Warmer Weather

During winter I always end up throwing on a hoodie and some leggings due to it being cold, but as the weather warms up, I have the freedom to dress how I want to without the weather restricting me. Bringing out my summer wardrobe and being able to wear cute tops without a jacket is always a plus to springtime!


     2. Running Outside

Going to a smelly gym during the winter can be a drag. I love being able to go outside to enjoy the fresh air and also get a workout in. Having a destination helps me to have a better workout and to have more fun while I run.


     3. Baby Bunnies

Cottontail bunnies reproduce during Spring and Summertime and it has always been my favorite part of spring since I was little. They are adorable and seeing cute little bunnies scattered throughout the neighborhood always lifts my spirits.


      4. Colorful Environment

The flowers start blooming once again and the trees’ leaves begin to grow back which makes going outside is much more enjoyable. Photography during the spring can also be much prettier due to the environment being bright and inviting.


      5. Spring Skiing

The snow is still great and the weather being warmer makes skiing more enjoyable. In the Winter I get extremely cold and spend half the time I’m up in the mountains in the lodge drinking hot cocoa, but when the weather improves I can spend more time on the slopes. My family skies mostly at A-Basin and it is usually open until May.

Spring is almost here and I can’t wait! What’s your favorite thing to do in the spring? Leave a comment!

The Top 5 Things You Need for Spring

By: Lucia McMunn

Sunscreen- You can never go wrong wearing sunscreen to help reduce skin damage, prevent wrinkles and keep your skin glowing. We suggest you get a head start this year! Sun Bum “OG Sunscreen” is definitely our top choice.

Hydration- Staying hydrated is a key component to staying healthy during the hot Colorado Summers, and with Hydro Flask‘s release of new colors for their line, you couldn’t go wrong with a bottle in the new shade Lavender.

Shoes- New season, new shoes! I personally swear by Vans and I would highly recommend their yellow checkered slides. They’re cute as heck and very comfortable.

AirPods- For those of you who love to work out or want to get back in the groove of activity after hibernating all through winter, AirPods are great. I, for one, hate when the cords on my headphones snag on things and they get yanked out of my ears. Invest in some AirPods and you won’t be disappointed, I know I wasn’t!

Clothing- This wouldn’t make sense if I didn’t throw in at least one piece of clothing and I am obsessed with this new fad. Jean skirts are the new shorts! Cute and casual at the same time is my fave thing.
