Spring has Sprung (Almost)
I have been obsessed with reading blogs from Paris recently. Spring is actually beginning to spring around here (maybe? I hope so?) and all I can think of is Paris, Paris, Paris (and I most certainly do not mean Hilton!!). I spent 11 weeks in the city of light back in the fall of 2003 and though its really fall weather that makes me ache so hard for France, just seeing the beautiful flowers posted on Chocolate and Zucchini, one of my favorite food blogs, and the amazing chocolate at La Coquette really just turns on the little flame inside me that says "hang in there, spring is coming soon..." Clotilde (C&Z) even mentioned the Parc Du Montsouris a few days ago, which is right outside the dorm where I stayed and where I ran and walked nearly every day during my all too brief stay in France.
The very beginnings of what I can feel will one day become warm breezes are also helping to shake me out of my winter lethargy. I've been good, I've curled up in front of the tube with my knitting almost every night but now, I feel like there is so much more that I am capable of. Like hauling out the sewing machine and finally conquering its scaryness. And working on my quilt, and even sewing skirts! I found a really cute pattern online and I just need to see if I can find anything better at JoAnn Fabrics this week before I buy it. But all in all, I'm excited, I've got a lot of projects brewing and I think it is going to be a good spring.
