And don't forget your jewelry box.
Winter has its own beauty, but it is definitely the season where we might allow ourselves to get weighed down, caught in a rut. In our cozy rut, we're happy wearing heavy jewelry with our warm, heavy sweaters.
Dig yourself out of by pulling some of the jewelry pieces that have been hiding away all Winter and wear them in fresh ways with your new Spring-Fling outfits. Make sure to add some new jewelry to your shopping spree list!

Go for a walk.
Read some poetry
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
