Even though this magazine cover is a good two years old (looks like it came out on my birthday!) the photo feels just right for a day like today. Here's the article that I think originally accompanied it.
Saturday I was so sad because we just missed out on nabbing some lilacs from the Union Square farmer's market. I bought some really pretty tulips instead, but they weren't quite the same.
Lilacs are such an important part of Spring in my mind. There's a big bush behind my parents' house, and every year I would wait and wish and hope that they'd be blooming enough by the 1st of May to make May Day crowns.
Anyways, today on my walk back from Beacon's Closet I spied two enormous bucketfulls of big purple flowers outside Khim's Grocery Store. All afternoon the breeze coming through our window smelled the way sunshine feels on your legs the first day of the year you wear shorts.
