Blogger Diary: First Weeks of Spring

Post image for Blogger Diary: First Weeks of Spring

Life has been pretty fun the past three weeks, there was definitely a lot going on. Looking back on all that’s happened through the captured moments, I feel like I’ve been living life to the brim. I realize that I was constantly on the move, observing or thinking about something. It must be that spring energy at my back.

Spring magically fell upon us much too early. I can’t say I minded. My best friend and I shopped for flowers and herbs and planted them in the backyard. I shed the winter jacket and threw on spring layers.

My father came into town for a night, so my friends and I took him to a favorite restaurant of ours, Dmitri’s. It was one of the aforementioned strangely warm evenings, the trees were blossoming, and we ate outside. Pictured above (beet, hummus, and pita from their phenomenal Greek platter along with grilled scallops) was what I ordered that night. The food is so simple, light and fresh – I can’t get enough.

I took this picture from the top of Rockefeller Center when I was up in NYC for the opening of our new store. We went up to take a shot of the store girls conquering NYC, it was a magical experience and quite a view.

Of course I caught a few shows, too. Of note was Dry the River opening up for Bowerbirds at Johnny Brenda’s. Dry the River is a quartet of talented, heartthrob, young men. Awesome, awesome performers above all, but the vocals, entrancing beat combinations, and violin weren’t too shabby either. I loved that the lead singer performed with bare feet. These guys are definitely someone to watch. I suggest starting with the track, “No Rest,” if you are unfamiliar.

Not one, but two of my friends have this old Free People bracelet. I love it to the moon and back.

There have been long, satisfying days at work. At the end of it all, sometimes Abigail and I watch the sun set over the Navy Yard. It’s such a beautiful place to be. :)
