Happy April 8th! Unfortunately, there is little to no significance to the date because we still seem to be bouncing between winter and spring. However, yesterday was a lovely April Shower kind of day with warmer temperatures, gray skies, excitable gusts of wind, and steady rain. On days like yesterday it is not advisable to go to Home Depot and buy a bunch of plywood to stuff in the back of your little Subaru… chances are you will end up somewhat flustered and pretty darn wet with a precariously packed car full of flimsy plywood that dances the bunny hop over every crack in the pavement. Ask me how I know! Instead, for your next rainy day, we would suggest donning a cozy spring layered ensemble, complete with weather-appropriate footwear and outerwear, and jumping the ferry or getting outside for a beautiful day by the water. We plan to take our own advice on the next rainy day.
There is a definite vitality in the air on a warm, windy, rainy spring day. The air feels charged and makes you want to breathe a little deeper than usual. Maybe it’s all the baby green things trying to push through the surface of the earth. Whatever it is, the environment demands your presence and I like that, because often times I need a reminding nudge to live fully in each moment.
Today, we also challenge you to a quick game of I Spy… we’ll go first. I spy with my little eye something navy and Eklund Griffin American Handmade!!
Happy day! Blair + Hayley
