Where is Spring?!

After saying “Happy Spring” last week and posting pictures of flowering trees, it was quite shocking to step outside this morning and see the beautiful, fully-in-bloom trees covered with snow! It was a pretty sight to see, but I’m REALLY ready for warm, sunny weather. My friend and fellow blogger, Lauren, was telling me that the St. Louis area also got some unexpected snow.  It really seems like winter has been especially long this year and now I know it’s not just in our heads!

How’s the weather by you?

Spring Flowers

Happy 1st day of spring everyone! Can you believe it’s spring already?! All of the flowering trees and warm weather in DC are making it easy to believe that winter has definitely ended (and was barely ever here this year).

Hope you enjoy the day!

Relishing Spring

Doesn’t this time if year just make you want to lounge and gather in spaces like these? Houzz always has the best images of indoor and outdoor design ideas. If you haven’t checked them out, I would highly recommend it! My sister told me about the site months ago and I instantly feel in love.

Happy Wednesday! Can you believe it’s almost May?!
