Slow Down

I'm sure I say the same thing from year to year, but something seems so different about this Spring.  Perhaps it's the unusually warm weather. It's like we hit the fast forward button (that made me think of a vhs for some reason) and we're moving too quickly to enjoy the subtleties of the season.

It isn't Spring until my mom asks for the third time in a week, "Did I tell you that my crocuses are already blooming?".  This year she has already picked dozens of daffodils and her weeping cherry tree is in full bloom. Thanks to Skype I can actually enjoy them with her. 
Did you have a chance to walk through the muddy park in your rain boots? There are so many cute rain boots out there I can hardly stand it. But, how many pairs could one actually own? (That's a rhetorical question if my husband is reading this...)  I can't go from winter boots to flip-flops...I can't. You wouldn't want me to.  First things first...I need a pedicure. Yes, need far surpasses want at this point. Next, legs.... white... frightening.  One word...self-tanner. Wait that's technically two.  You see it's all too fast I can't even think straight.







All this pampering talk...now I've gone off track.  All I was trying to say is... I need a pause button.








I love the details of Spring and I don't want to miss them. 




Next thing you know people will be complaining about the heat. Then the cold. Then the heat. I want to get off the weather-coaster and enjoy each and every mud puddle, rain drop, budding flower, chirping bird and all the fashion that makes Spring so special.

We had the most beautiful spring weather here in the Boston area last week. I went for an hour 1/2 walk with a girlfriend on Friday... it was just way too nice to be indoors. Unfortunately, this week feels like March... cold, rainy, dark. At least I had a taste of what is just around the corner!! xo

Loved reading your blog today. You are so right-we all need to slow down and enjoy every moment of every day.(Easier said than done) This morning we are in the 30's, so we will get the chance to enjoy?? early spring again. LFM

Love the photos. We've had an incredible spring here in southern Maine....but today feels more like March. Last week felt like June!

You're absolutely right! It seems like we are just breezing through the seasons and I don't want to miss one bit of spring especially. :) xoxo

This post made me snicker! 'First things first...I need a pedicure. Yes, need far surpasses want at this point. Next, legs.... white... frightening. One word...self-tanner. Wait that's technically two. You see it's all too fast I can't even think straight.' HAHAHA! Love your blog! I'll be back soon! xoxo A-

Loved the photos. I am trying to slow down and enjoy the weather right now before it gets too hot to enjoy it.

Last week we had GREAT spring like weather here in NYC. It's pretty much back to normal now, but I'm totally understanding where you are coming from -- it's time to enjoy it all. I love the concept of coming off of the weather-coaster.
