The winter is nearly over and the sun is out, with warm days predicted ahead. I cannot wait to be bare-legged and sandal-footed in the very near future! The winter always makes me a little down in the dumps about life no matter how hard I try to feel otherwise. No number of tights, delicious candles burning, fresh orchids in vases, new duvet covers or soft leather boots I buy makes the dark and cold feel okay.
I long for soft cotton dresses and open-toed shoes to show off obnoxious shades of toenail polish like jade, coral, sunshine yellow and magenta ... the sun on my shoulders, straw hats and ice-blocks... the smell of the sea (just not the sand) and lazy afternoons on picnic rugs with lemonade and deli food... martinis and chandelier earrings at a little restaurant down near the ocean... and the ever cheerful sight of my straw bag with my painted parasol and a good book poking out the top.
Yes, bring the sun and the sangria, pronto. I'll pack the sun lotion.
