I did it. I tempted fate and bit the bullet and pulled out my summer clothing box yesterday. It's been well over 50 degrees everyday for the past couple of weeks. Plus, Daylight Savings. Furthermore, I'm sitting outside in a t-shirt as I write this. So, I'm just going to say it. Winter is over. Spring is here. I think it's for real.
To me, the first few days of Spring smell like college. I don't know exactly what it is, but it brings a smile to my face every year and it makes the transition extra sweet. I've spotted a few eager buds springing to life on the trees along my block and even the plants inside our house are waking up - our orchid exploded in the last week and is now showing five glorious flowers.
These early days of spring wouldn't be complete without a few daydreams about the magic April and May have in store. Below, a little spring dreaming to inspire you.
Open days at the Garden Conservancy. So I can get up close and personal with all those May flowers.
These shoes. Because it's open toe season ya'll.
A day trip to Keene, NY complete with picnics, and farmer's markets, and hikes through the hills.
Iced coffee and then some from this new spot in Brooklyn.
Here's to Spring!
