April 19, 2011

because it's april and i'm wearing mittens.

The Chicago weather is not cooperating. At all. As in: it snowed last night. And I wore my thickest sweater today. With a heavy coat. And a hat. And gloves. All of this, of course, in a season known for florals and flip-flops, umbrellas and airy jackets. 

(Cue the daydreaming.)

Patio dinners, ice cold lemonade, breezy dresses, sun-kissed cheeks, fresh bouquets, coconut scents, blossoming trees, nighttime walks, fireflies, barbecues, days that stretch on and on--warm and sunny days, never-want-it-to-end days...

Sometimes, today is difficult.
And so you prepare for tomorrow.

I feel your pain, we had beautiful weather yesterday but the sun decided to hide today. I am wearing a coat with open toe shoes *sigh

This spring has been so fickle! We get a tease of it for a day or so, and then cold and gray and unending rain. Bring on the breezy dresses and sun-kissed cheeks!

I feel the same way - it is awful! Here's to hoping nice weather will come ASAP! :)

I live in NC. It usually starts to warm up in April(Low 60s High 70s). Well, this year we hit 80 in mid April. I'm very thankful for the beautiful weather here! But I would've enjoyed a few more weeks of weather that allowed me to wear tights and boots!
Your blog is so fun and relaxing to read! Keep up the great work.
