My 2023 Spring bucket list

I can’t believe it is spring already! How is that possible? The weather here is definitely getting warmer and the first signs of spring are there, but somehow I don’t feel in the “spring” mood yet, which is very odd because I just love everything about this season: the warmer and longer days, lighter clothes and pastel colours, flowers reappearing in the shops, seasonal fruits and veggies, and obviously the promise of Summer at the end of it all.

Anyway, regardless of my feeling about it, it is officially spring, which calls for the final round of my seasonal bucket lists. I posted Sumer, Autumn and Winter last year, so now it’s time for the beautiful season of Spring.

How did winter go?

Winter is probably my least favourite season, so the bucket list helped in making it a tad more enjoyable and to look forward to many things. I did leave it aside for February and March as I was moving houses, but I did nonetheless managed to tick off many things!

First of all, my trip to Vienna in early December was just perfect to do all the Christmassy things on the bucket list: I went to many Christmas markets, tried new food places, drank hot chocolate and went ice-skating in front of the Town Hall.

Back in Brussels, I did eat a lot of cheese-based dishes, like raclette or tartiflette (basically cheese and potatoes) and put up the few festive decorations that I had. I also played some boardgames, spent time with family and friends, watched a Christmas movie and read a winter-themed book, even though I haven’t finished it yet.

With the new year, along with my 2022 Review, I also wrote down my goals and intentions for the new year, which helped me to define exactly what I want out of this year, which will be challenging.

Spring bucket list

As always, this bucket list is not about stressing out to check everything off, but mostly to encourage myself to enjoy the season even more, to make this time of the year memorable and simply to make beautiful memories.

Now, here’s my Spring bucket list:


What is on your Spring bucket list this year?

    Hi, Julliete and Happy Spring to you – the official end of winter and its chilly weather is something truly worth celebrating.
    For me, spring is the season of renewal. After a cold, harsh winter, nothing lifts my spirits like seeing early spring flowers popping up around me. As the weather warms and days get longer, my whole perspective shifts. On my spring bucket list is heading to the seaside more often to do beach cleanups, plant my garden and listen to the birds sing. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

      Happy Spring to you too, Aiva! It’s true that the beginning of Spring feels a bit like the start of the new year and it is a great feeling! I love your plans for this spring, having a nice garen to tend to must be quite challenging but really rewarding, especially at this time of the year!

        As we live in an apartment with a decent size balcony, I do not have space for flower beds therefore I keep my garden small, with just a few herbs, salads and plenty of flowers. It’s my own outdoor oasis 🙂

    I love the wear the colourful outfit entry! It’s starting to be t-shirt weather here some days and it’s nice to wear some lighter colours after the heavy and dark winter colours. The cherry blossoms have started so I will be busy running across town trying to see them!

      Absolutely! I can’t wait to wear lighter and more colourful clothes, especially as I really don’t like all the layers of winter! I’m sure Spring is beautiful in Korea! Are there a lot of cherry blossoms?

    It seemed so surreal to read about a spring bucket list while we’re getting more snow over here (I’ll send a pic in a moment). I do hope you’ll get around to focusing on each of these things and enjoying them though! 😀

      Ahahah oh no, so sorry for your Canadian “spring”! I hope you’ll get to spring in your part of the world soon! Here it’s mostly raining for now, so it doesn’t feel very different from winter to be honest ahah! Thanks for stopping by, Lashaan!

    Being outside, walking, drinking or eating is certainly a great quality of spring that I also like.

      Ahah, definitely! Though it’s still quite cold here in Belgium so it doesn’t feel like “true” spring yet!
