It’s the time of the season for loving. The time of year that ignites plans for summer and starts the movement of Midwestern hermits from their heated apartments to the outdoors. Time to wake up and smell the roses. Really, it’s time for the roses!

Here in Los Angeles, we don’t have to deal with cold temperatures and the agony of waiting through the winter months to enjoy the outdoors, but for the majority of this country, spring signifies sunshine, flowers, and, well, happiness. For many, it’s a time to be celebrated, a time to be outside with friends, a time to BBQ, maybe build something, or even just enjoy some good music on a patio.

Here’s a playlist for those who have (yet again) braved the cold wind and snow and made it to this glorious time of year when they can finally enjoy the outdoors again. We salute you. Now go have fun in the sun. Frolic in some flowers if you can!
