It’s hard to believe that yesterday was the first day of spring. Seriously, right now I’m on the couch, drinking a warm cup of hot chocolate with little marshmallows, watching snow gracefully fall and pile up outside. On a day like today, spring dresses, pastel shorts, and Easter Sunday seem years away, but thankfully they will be here soon. But what can we do until spring actually starts to look and feel like spring? If you’re like me, you will daydream craving the joys winter weather cannot bring. And if you feel so inclined, join me as I visualize, in anticipation, a beautiful spring day.
Life will be in the air again. By life, I don’t mean pollen. The awful transition phase (or phases if you live in Virginia) from white snow to yellow dust is no more. Your eyes and throat are no longer as scratchy as a wool sweater and you don’t sneeze every other minute anymore. By life, I also don’t mean water. The time of year has passed where almost every day you feel like a massive bucket of water is being filled and then dumped on you over and over again like at your kid’s favorite water park.
By life, I mean all that is wonderful about springtime. It is the ideal temperature to wear your favorite outfit. Every sip of your favorite beverage is a perfect combination of cool and refreshing. Birds chirp in flawless harmony. Children laugh without a care in the world. Photographers relish the opportunity to go outside and capture a moment of this day and cling to it for an eternity.
Parks are no longer home to barren trees and covered with dead grass. They are revitalized with color and waiting for their beauty to be rediscovered and admired. Outdoor patio furniture is no longer just a decorative piece in your backyard. You can bring out the outdoor cushions and pillows and spend your evenings under the light of the stars curled up by the warmth of the fire.Now if the mention of patio furniture interrupted your spring fantasy and sent you into a spiral of uncertainty as to whether you covered your wicker furniture or removed its cushions before the snow, I’m sorry to have startled you. I hope you came to the calming realization that your furniture is in fact fine. But if not, or if thinking about spring has you considering an upgrade of your outdoor furniture, you’re at the right place. At Virginia Furniture Market, we have the largest selection in the area at the very best prices on outdoor furniture. We also boast a knowledgeable sales staff who will work in concert with your vision to help construct your dream outdoor space.So whether your dream spring day is spent sitting on a park bench watching your children’s imagination flourish, napping in your hammock as it sways in the gentle afternoon breeze, or having friends over to eat fresh fruit salad and a grilled entrée in your outdoor dining room, we would love to help make your beautiful springtime vision a reality.Happy Spring,
