Ringing in Spring

Hi there! Remember me? I’m the girl who disappears every time she travels to Chicago. At least I have the best excuses ever, and they all revolve around seeing family and friends. But all good things must come to an end, sometimes in not-so-good ways. Let me elaborate – I had one of the worst flights ever last night! Not only were we delayed to take off, but LaGuardia wouldn’t let any planes land due to bad weather. We circled around NYC for a while before re-routing to Hartford, Connecticut due to low fuel levels. After waiting around for an hour to re-fuel, we finally set back out to LaGuardia. Luckily the flight took only half an hour but I arrived home at 3AM instead of 10PM. Yikes!


Let’s be real though for a sec – at least I made it home and didn’t disappear, right? Right.

Well now that I got that mini rant out of my system, let’s move on to the more joyful focus of today. It’s officially spring!!! I haven’t actually been outside yet to welcome in the warm weather New York City blessed us with (I know right), but my windows are open and I’m in high spirits. The changing of seasons always brings optimism and excitement into my life…who doesn’t love new beginnings?


This post really has no purpose other than to pop in and say hello. For reasons unknown, I have a really good feeling about the upcoming weeks/months. This overpowering giddiness takes over as soon as I start thinking about spring, and the butterflies in my stomach support my intuition. I also keep feeling like it’s only the start of the week, and the added fact that tomorrow is Friday makes everything so much better! What else is better than thinking it’s Monday only to realize that it’s already the weekend?

Who else is excited for spring? The answer should be everyone!

What are your plans for the weekend?

    I’ve been loving March so far and surprisingly my allergies haven’t been (too) bad. I can’t believe there is only one full week of March left though!!
