We received a dusting of snow two nights ago to top off the many, many inches we received last week. Then today the mercury read 63, which I am not at all complaining about, except for that teeny tiny by-product of all this weather madness- mud and sludge and puddles galore. I expect this will be me for the next several weeks:

Therefore, I’ve been retreating to my Pinterest boards in an effort to dose myself with some virtual Vitamin D. Join me, won’t you? I need to surround myself with things that are warm, blooming, outdoorsy- something that is not covered in snow.

Like open windows and billowing curtains…

Fresh squeezed lemonade? I’ll take a pitcher.

Outdoor coffee and pastry would be amazing, thanks.

And I will never say no to sun and sand with an endless ocean.

Getaway You know, I used to think people were crazy for using precious vacation time in the winter. I was all about taking a long break in the summer, but now I most certainly understand.

Here’s hoping spring is on its way to your corner of the world (only if you wish ;) )!
