It's been a warm sunny Saturday here in San Francisco, and for the first time this year, I feel spring in the air. My day started off with a coffee in the park, and a little puppy watching. The park near my house is THE spot for dog meetup groups, and I could have sat there all day watching the dogs play.
I mean, is there a better way to start the day?? I think not.
On days like this, I want to stay outside as long as I can, so after puppy-patrol at the park, I took a long walk through the neighborhood. All my friends on the east coast are just settling in for winter, but here in California, I always feel so smug to welcome these 70 degree days in January. I spotted the first cherry blossoms blooming already, and it made me so happy, because spring really is amazing in San Francisco.
I can't wait for the cherry blossoms to be blooming in full force. Across the street from our apartment is a french chateau inspired mansion (yes, mansion - I'm not exaggerating) and it's flanked in front by four cherry blossom trees. I'll have to post a picture of them once they are fully in bloom - it totally makes me feel like I'm in Paris.
Anyway, completely inspired by the sunny warm weather, I picked up a few bunches of tulips, and they are sitting pretty on the coffee table with some new aqua coasters I snagged on sale at ZGallerie (I love how they look like they are lacquered) and my FAVORITE Restoration Hardware catalogs.
Hope you all are having a lovely weekend!!
