Things I Love Thursday: Here Comes The Sun…

Things I Love ThursdayCherry blossoms; spring cleaning; Dolly’s photobomb!; bowler hat love; Klimt at the Met; Shiva & Parvati at Phagwah!

Bonjour! I’m writing to you from the tail-end of a glorious, lazy Wednesday, which included a trip to the Met with Isaac to saturate my eyeballs, a walk from the Upper East Side to Times Square, eating a sneaky cupcake at my husband’s work, & falling in love with a pair of Karen Walker Anytime sunglasses in tortoise… It was fantastic to get away from my computer for a day & soak up the city; definitely something I need to do more often!

Here’s a little list of things that have made me smile recently. Have you been writing your regular gratitude lists, too? If not, there’s no better time than RIGHT NOW to get into the groove (boy, you’ve got to prove, your love to meeeee)!
