Like most of you, I imagine, I have been dying for spring to get here. Had I known I was going to use my winter jacket for months and months I wouldn’t have been as reluctant to buy it as I was. But now I’m finally able to put it away, pull out the skirts, the light sweaters, ballet flats and stride into this spring and summer.
Getting up in them morning is also easier when it doesn’t feel like it’s still the dead of the night when your alarm clock sounds. Lately I’ve been making sure to get up earlier than everyone else to enjoy a couple of morning minutes when it’s just me, the morning sunlight, a hot cup of java, no morning traffic, and a promise of the beautiful day ahead. I appreciate these moments and the fact that my beautiful family is still snoozing just a few feet away, happy and healthy. Using Lara’s favorite English word, I’d describe these morning moments as AWESOME.
And so, in honor of spring, I couldn’t have thought of a more perfect outfit than one that includes a rosebud sweater.
