Every year in Seattle February brings a weather tease that makes you feel like spring is here. It lures you in subtly with a few days or even a week of sun and rainless skies and you start to feel hopeful that winter is winding down. But sadly, it never lasts. Here’s to hoping for an early spring!

1. fresh as a spring day

2. my little chickadee

3. the perfect exhibit–springtime, the Parisian Avant-Garde, the Steins, The Met

4. My favorite spring vegetable

5. La Costa Brava is the perfect song to listen to get you into a different headspace–no more winter funk!!
