The Power of the Poppy

Is it just us, or does merely looking at spring-like images bring hope that these dark, grey days are short lived?

They are shorter-lived than they may seem, by the way — 36 days until spring!

Until then, here are a few poppy options (poptions? anyone?) that are simultaneously cheering us up and making our credit cards sad.

Summer Fever

Today is the second day of spring – can you believe it? Not in my mind! Spring came and went in about oh, a week or so, and I’m on to summer fever. After a week straight of 80 degree + weather, I want to not feel weird about wearing sandals in March (this is usually still boot season!), I want my summer hours at work to kick in (yay!) and I want to be spending this upcoming weekend reading magazines at Oak Street Beach and begging Ali to go on the water run for us. I’m not COMPLAINING, its just… confusing!

I recently illustrated this happy, snoozing girl on the beach that I’ve been wishing was me for the last 15 days or so. 🙂  Hope it makes you think of summer fun too!

This one’s for you, mama!
