Some days, despite the heaviness of quarantine, I can still feel the hopefulness of spring. The reminder that things will get better and life doesn't have to only be doom and gloom. Though to be fair, there are plenty of those days; when I get an email about yet another event being canceled, when I try to buy hand sanitizer but the only place it's in stock is eBay for double the retail price, when it's cold and raw and raining for days on end...

But then there are the other days. When the sun comes out, when I look out my bedroom window and see the cherry blossom tree in full bloom, when I get packages in the mail, even if they contain boring things like shampoo and deodorant, (but you know there are enough 'fun' packages ending up on my porch too). Sometimes positive thoughts come into my mind and they get to linger for a few minutes before the negative ones overtake them. Sometimes I scroll though my spring blog posts from all the years past and revel in the comfort that the flowers always arrive, the world turns green, and eventually the cold fades away.

  1. Wow those trees are stunning! We just planted a magnolia tree and I can't wait for it to get larger! I just love the blooms! You look darling! I love those pants!

  2. The sense of hope and optimism just seems to radiate from you in these photos - you truly look stunning and the back drop is gorgeous!

  3. What a beautiful top, it's so nice with the printed pants and perfectly spring like, especially with those beautiful blooms! :)

    I was beginning to feel like I was getting used to everything being cancelled and things being closed but now stores are reopening here and restrictions are being relaxed and it's a bit of a shock - didn't expect it all to happen so quickly!

    Hope that you are having a good week :)

  4. I do love seeing the pretty trees out my window. Thank goodness we have a pink tree outside otherwise I wouldn't have seen any real blossoms this year! Curse not leaving the house!

  5. I love looking outside at the trees and hearing the parrots and parakeets - we have to find the resilience in nature and try to apply it to our lives.
    I feel we're in pause... and here it seems like going back to our new normal will take longer that in other places.
