I don’t think I’m alone when I say winter is my least favorite time of year. Once the Christmas and New Year holidays come and go, it seems like a lifetime before the air begins to warm, the lawnmowers are out and people can stand being outside for longer than five minutes. Despite my birthday coming up next month, I sometimes wish I could just fast forward to May (or move someplace where temperature never goes below 70 degrees). To give myself a reminder of what I have to look forward to this spring, this post honors one of my favorite things about warm weather — new hydrangeas in bloom. Hydrangeas are my absolute favorite flower, and most recently have gained a lot of meaning for me. A couple months ago, the love of my life Jacob proposed to me and I said yes! It was one of the happiest moments in my life and while we have a ways to go as far as planning, I know without a doubt that the hydrangea will be the feature floral at our wedding. And who says I can’t go ahead and bring a little summer into this bleak and dreary winter now? With that said, here’s a little idea I had to make a DIY flower wreath, reminding myself of all the things we have to look forward to this summer.
