By Maria Darbenzio

Whether you’re getting married, spending time with your family, or just enjoying nights on the town, we’re sure that you’re looking forward to the warmer weather just as much as we are. With that thought in mind, we put together these awesome articles from our partners to help you with springtime planning:

1. Outdoor dining: As the snow melts and the chill in the air begins to fade, cafes and restaurants everywhere are starting to open their patios. Eating a nice meal in the sunshine is the perfect way to usher in the much-needed break from winter. Try some of these awesome makeup looks as you get ready to kiss the cold goodbye. (

2. Picnic in the park: If restaurant patio dining isn’t your thing and you want a more intimate setting, take a trip to your local park and set up a picnic for two. Whether you’re married, seeing someone serious, or going on a first date, this is a great way to soak up some fresh air and show your partner how much you appreciate spending time together. For added romance, you can even slip a cute little poem into your basket. (

3. Family bonding: After being cooped up in your house all winter, it’s time to get outside and enjoy nature! Try to plan activities that are fun for the whole family so you can just focus on being happy while staying active. For some ideas, take a look at these great family time suggestions. (
