I have a confession to make. I hate March Madness. Actually better put, I hate basketball. Each year when the tournament rolls around and I get emails and texts inquiring my level of interest in filling out a bracket (zero), I remember my distaste for the whole event. I have realized over the years, however, that I will not beat March Madness and my love for my friends and for entertaining is much, much greater than my hatred for the game.
So, being the entertainer that I am, I cannot ignore that throughout the month, the people congregating in my house will, indeed, be watching the games and I will carry on doing what I enjoy doing most, throwing a party.
When I say the word party, you should know that I say that loosely. In my house, where three or more are gathered, a party exists and this weekend was no different. It wasn’t necessarily planned, but that is what I love most about entertaining and with a few small tricks up my sleeve, I was able to pull off a pretty great march madness party with little prep.
Although it doesn’t quite feel like spring here in Ohio, I did smell the first signs of it this weekend with our 40 degree weather! It’s a cool, but fresh smell with a hint of sweetness. Do you know what I mean? Matt and I always talk about how we can smell a season before it arrives.
I know that spring is indeed coming, so I’m busy preparing for the sparkling sunshine and colorful flowers that are right around the corner. After returning from Las Vegas last week, I got a little dose of what’s to come, and felt a need to share it with friends who are still working to get our of their winter funk by delivering little doses of spring.
I got started on thinking about what exactly it is that makes me feel the spring. Do you know what it is for you? I know exactly what to put into a basket to help ‘Spread the Spring’ and even made a video to show you how to do it.
