So, now we're officially into March and thisclose to the official start of spring (although it's unofficially been spring since like January 7 in Louisiana.) The muted colors are starting to get a little brighter, and the trees are starting to grow their yellow-green leaves. As much as I love the winter season and the holidays, springtime always leaves me feeling a little brand new.

Today, let's celebrate the oncoming of spring with the 2017 color of the year, Greenery! Definitely my favorite color of the year in recent memory. During the unveiling of the color back in December, Pantone described their choice as:
Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world.
A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.
Since I'm feeling a little extra pep in my step today (and since I've been less wordy around here), I put together a nice little Greenery Spotify mix for you to enjoy this weekend! A completely random mix of songs with "green" in the title (and I've at least heard most of them before!) and a small shoutout for any Suits fans out there.
I hope you all have a great, springy weekend!
