Spring Countdown

One week from today, the spring season officially kicks off.

Granted, this year’s “winter” has been virtually nonexistent so celebrating a season that signals the beginning of thawing icicles seems, I admit, a bit silly. That being said, spring is one of my favorite seasons (not too hot but not too cold and with just the right amount of blossoming flowers and chirping birds) so I fully intend to raise a glass of crisp white wine to what I hope to be a beautiful few pre-summer months…with some predictable fog-filled and drizzly days sure to weasel their way in there too.

In honor of said weather, or for us season-neutral San Franciscans, mentality shift, I’m preparing to transition my daily wardrobe (spring cleaning is a very real thing), find some seasonally inspired recipes and plan a few weekend trips…not that I really need another excuse for any of those changes.

Hope you’re all enjoying the last few days of winter chill (for all those still braving the Arctic cold, consider planning your weekend trip out to the warm West)!
