Spring Break

This pic from @nataporter, my friend Natalie’s Instagram handle, is perfect for the first day of spring. It may be spring on the calendar, but it certainly doesn’t look like this in NYC. Yet. By next week the cherry blossoms could be in full bloom.

My girls are home on spring break. It’s been a bit like March madness. Despite my older daughter’s post-finals-and-trip-to-the-Bahamas cold, we’ve been looking for prom and graduation dresses. And we’re waiting on college decisions. My best friend’s daughter just got into MIT; we’re taking that as a sign of good luck.  Fingers crossed.

Until our trees are abloom like Natalie’s in London, we’ll keep dreaming of spring-like weather, and acceptances.

  • March madness is a perfect way to describe the month for seniors graduating everywhere. It’s the turning point in their last year in high school when big decisions are made and the countdown really begins. Having been through it, all I can say is enjoy every minute of the process…the acceptances, the prom, the graduation…they’re memories for a lifetime. Best wishes for a happy warm spring ahead too!

  • We had the wettest winter on record so it’s lovely to have some sunshine, at last! All the cherry blossom and magnolia trees have gone into overdrive, London’s looking beautiful at the moment.

  • I am from the UK and I could tell your image was from London also 😉 For once the weather has been fab and the cherry blossoms are blooming everywhere. It’s really not that typical 😉

  • I can’t skip over the wonderful news of best friend’s daughter getting into MIT. I’m still of an age where I remember, “we’ve come a long way, baby.” Yes, hoping your daughter gets her first choice.
