I am (extremely) happy to say spring has finally arrived. Six cold and dark months were tough for this born and raised California girl. But winter has released it’s grip on the city, revealing green lawns, bright flowers, and sparkling cobblestones. We spent this last week soaking it all in; lounging in Parco Valentino, strolling along the Po river, meandering through antique shows, and slurping up smoothies (with my brand new orange ‘Blendy’!) My joy is boundless. I will stop trying to explain, because, as Neltje Blanchan says, it’s hopeless.
“Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?”
