This week... I'm stopping to smell the flowers at every chance I get. I'm working so much that I forget what day it is. Weekends, don't really exist when your home is your office. Thankfully I love my job and am very blessed that I get to do what I love. I'm counting the days until were laying on the beach and swimming with the creatures.
Spring passes quickly. I try to savor every little moment that it gives us. When the flowers start to bloom, I'm like a kid in a candy store. I get so excited and try to capture every moment of it. My instagram feed is filled with Spring produce and flowers. Lilacs have always been a star. Ever since I was young I would hunt for lilac bushes. I used to cut down huge branches, enough to fill the back of the suv. I would place some in every room of the house. I like to breath in their scent, it intoxicates me. Cherry blossoms at Brooklyn Botanical, is on the list. A truly magical experience.
Had fun playing with some of Ovenly's baked goods, also pictured above. They are soon opening a beautiful store front here in Greenpoint. Their treats are sublime, classics with a real twist. More on that later :)
I dont know about you guys, but I have been indulging in lots of local honey. It helps my allergies and is delicious drizzled on buttery toast with a touch of sea salt. A spoonful a day can help minimize your allergies, forget the pills! Wouldnt you rather just eat honey? Go to your local farmers market and ask for last years seasonal honey. Helps you build a better immunity. Love the bees and support your local bee keepers.
