Days are longer, the windows are open wide and the air is heady with the scent of blossom.
Clothes are fewer, floatier and more colourful and life is suddenly being lived outside underneath a generous slick of sunscreen.
We've enjoyed picnics, met up with friends, woodland Bluebell walks, ice cream (lots), simple meals and refreshing cool drinks. Even the paddling pool has made an appearance.
I know it is probably going to be short lived which is why we are making the most of every sunny moment.
Housework has fallen by the wayside and been replaced with gardening, watering and tending to the plants which have suddenly sprung back to life.
(Please be reassured the arms that look quite pink in this photograph are really not).
Thanks to some recent job changes we have been managing to spend more time than ever together. Time we didn't realise just how much we were missing until now.
I love this time of year.
Life is good.
