Why We Love Spring

There are so many hallmarks of Spring: longer days, warmer weather, more sunshine, beautiful flowers. It’s no surprise that Spring is one of our favorite seasons! We asked a variety of our team members what they love most about Spring and they shared some common characteristics.

Bursts of Color

“I love all the beautiful flowers blooming everywhere and seeing all the birds flying around! It reminds me of being a little girl and helping my grandmother with her garden.”

Lauren Booker, Community Manager, Abberly Place Apartment Homes

“I love Spring flowers because they are so varied and vibrant and signal a rebirth. The flowers shake off the dreariness of winter and the beginning of plenty of sunshine. Looking at them as they bloom and show their beauty to the world bring me such joy.”

LaCole Gadson, Senior Regional Manager, HHHunt Apartment Living

“My favorite thing about Spring is watching all of the plant life come out of their winter hibernation and start growing and blossoming.  It is like a burst of color from what was gray and bare.  I also like the days get longer and the first real feel of that warn spring sun warming your skin. Those are my favorite things about Spring.”

Lance Goss, Vice President, HHHunt Apartment Living   

Senses and Smells

“I love the smell of Spring. Spring has this amazing ability to make everything seem fresh and new. We wake from the slumber and cold of winter to find everything sprouting. The trees start to bud and turn green, the grass starts to grow and you can get outside and smell the soil and the flowers the freshly mown yards and everyone around you looks hopeful and is smiling.”

Chantia Williams-Hicks, Community Manager, Abberly Square Apartment Homes

“I enjoy the cool weather and the sun shining all day! The ability to get out and about! I also really enjoy freshly cut grass!”

Rebecca Darling, Assistant Property Manager, Foxridge Apartment Homes and Hethwood Apartment Homes

Time Outdoors

“One of the main reasons I love about spring is changing and promising new of longer and brighter days coming out of the long, dark, winter months. Spring is literally a breath of fresh air! And as the days get longer/brighter, the nights get shorter, and it starts to feel warmer, where one is able to spend time outside with their loved ones and enjoy the outdoors.”

Neha Lorenzo, Community Manager, Abberly Avera Apartment Homes

“What I love about spring is the longer brighter sunny days! I really enjoy spending time outside, especially in Greenville where we have awesome places like Falls Park to enjoy. I am also a huge fan of spending the day out on a lake and soaking up the sun.”

Austin Hemlinger, Leasing Consultant, Abberly Market Point Apartment Homes

“What I like most about spring is that the temperatures are warming and everything starts growing again. We can get outside more and see our neighbors.  My wife and I also love to travel and with the warmer weather we start making our beach trips.”

Ed Shaffer, Director of Maintenance Operations, HHHunt Apartment Living

Spring takes on even more meaningful significance this year as we all adjust to these challenging times. The Spring season heralds important messages of renewal and brighter days ahead! More than ever, we need these signs of hope.
