8 plans to fill your spring calendar

Dec 19 2017, 2:19 pm

If you’re like us, it’s blowing your mind that spring is just around the corner! After hibernating all winter and watching House of Cards marathons, the guilt of nice weather is urging us to get out of the house. The days are getting longer, the sun is starting to shine, and that means there are more hours in the day to try cool new stuff. Say farewell to Kevin Spacey’s face for a while and fill your spring calendar with interesting experiences, new hobbies, and exciting adventures.
