Celebrating Springtime: Little April Showers

Happy Spring, princes and princesses!

Yeah, yeah, I know- Spring technically sprang a few weeks ago (March 20th, to be precise). However, it would seem that Mother Nature only just got the memo; as of last week, the Polar Vortex/Snowpocalypse of the winter is no more, and the season of budding blooms is here to stay! Spring is one of my favorite times of year- I just adore the feeling of freshness that comes with new life bursting from formerly barren flora-, and it's taking over the blog this week! All week long, I'll be sharing little tidbits of springtime (all with a Disney spin, of course!) to celebrate this most cheery time of year.

Thus far, April is living up to its reputation ("April showers bring May flowers", and all that); I am currently writing to the soundtrack of drops pitter-pattering on the window pane, with the forecast only predicting more of the same. Not that I terribly mind- there's nothing better to me than curling up with a cup o' coffee and watching the window on a rainy morning.

... what?

You mean I have to go out in all of that wetness?

Okay, maybe it's not all wonderful, but at least I have a tune to hum while I trudge through the puddles. "Little April Showers" from 1942's Bambi is my favorite song for a rainy day. The merry melody compensates for the gloom of gray skies and celebrates the springtime's special showers. It puts me in the perfect mindset for facing the gales outside; rather than grumbling about the raindrops tumbling, I'm more likely to leap through puddles on my way to class.

How do you handle April's showers? Sound off in the comments below!

  1. Haha this post is so appropriate because it is actually raining here now! We hadn't had much rain lately so I guess it's ok. I kind of like the rain. It gives me an excuse to stay in and be

    1. It's icky and rainy in my neck of the woods as well! I miss the sun, but I've enjoyed puddle-jumping in my rain boots while I can. It'll definitely be nice to curl up under a blanket once the day is done... rainy days are meant for laziness! :)
