We are reveling in spring over here. Have I mentioned that? Have you rolled your east coast eyes so far back into your freezing brains that you just want me and my sunshine to shut up already?

I know. I’m sorry. But what can I say? We are in the last throws of Smug Season. Soon, you’ll be sipping cocktails on your patios by the glow of fireflies and I’ll be leaning over an oscillating fan wearing an iced bikini at midnight swearing at myself for suffering through another summer. (How’s that for a visual?)

Okay, that is a bit dramatic. (Have you met me? I’ve got a PhD in exaggeration.*)

Bloom where you are planted, they say. Don’t drip directly into the fan, they say. We are being dragged into another warm summer. Might as well celebrate the colors and gentle nature of spring while we can, and decorate the house with adorable cactus and desert dwellers where hilariously possible.


*Actually, I don’t.

  1. This weekend, it’s going to be in the 90s in San Diego. We will be in Vegas, where it will only be in the 80s. Something wrong with that picture — driving to Vegas to escape the heat!?

  2. I LOVE that roadrunner pillow!!! Love it. I still get a little thrill every time I see a roadrunner. There’s one that nests in a tree by a McDonalds I like to frequent (I know – I know – but it’s my guilt pleasure) – she begs at the window for french fries!
