Springing

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Dear Olive,
There's been a distinct change in the weather this week. The evenings have lost most of their chill and the days have me sweating in tights and cardigans. A fly even came in and buzzed around the house this morning, it's annoying presence confirming what the calendar already told me. Spring is upon us. And with this change has come a shift in me, a renewed optimism. I feel lighter, healthier, positive-er. I want to plan afternoon cocktail parties in gardens, buy new sandals, eat salads. It's my birthday this month. And it also marks the one year anniversary of Shane and I getting engaged. Big plans are afoot! (Actually, none at all, but it sounds far more exciting to say there are.) But sushi - well, sushi we eat all year round, rain, hail, or shine.






PS darling little vintage blouse from Nells terrific etsy store.

it's oh so good isn't it - the warmth and light and optimism. I shopped with Nell too - lots of vintage goodness on its way. Olive, you'll have to compete with Che at sushi train - he has been known to eat 6 plates all by himself! x

Spring has been a bit of a tease in these parts...stormy, wet and windy..however it doesn't put a damper on the optimism that a new season brings :)

Thank heavens for spring! It seems it has been a long, long winter! Another little sushi lover. {my little guy is mad for sushi & he's only just 1!}

Looks like an awesome festival! I haven't tried face painting myself, is it easy to wash off? Olive is looking as cute as a button as always! x
