Hello, Spring

Guys, a thunderstorm woke me up this morning and I officially knew: it is Spring.

My wool coat has been on the coat rack for like, four days, while my trench coat has been in heavy rotation.

A fucking bird flew into my apartment (apparently this has been happening all over Chicago)

The Rifle Paper Co. iPhone cases have launched! (Psst, it looks like you can get 10% off with a code from Cup of Jo)

My basil plants have started coming in! And look pretty much exactly like this painting right now, but I have high hopes for them. 

It's been warm enough to take Lucille Austero to the beach! I think she's going to dig her first Chicago summer. 

What are your telltale first signs of Spring? And is anyone else welcoming it with opener-than-usual-arms because this winter was just the worst thing ever in the history of winters? Seriously, that time we got 20 inches of snow was better than this winter. 

xo,

  3. Sign of spring: the child in the apartment upstairs finally goes outside to play! How can such a little tiny girl make so damn much noise? It's like a herd of elephants up there sometimes!
