as spring becomes summer, i plan on...

making giant bowls of fresh fruit salad for breakfast

wearing flip flops and bikini tops in place of real shoes and bras
and wearing my hair salt-styled by the ocean
as often as possible

spreading a blanket in a park and reading in the sun
(even while there's still a cold enough breeze
that you need another blanket on top)

trying new types of salads with original ingredients
(we started yesterday with a baby spinach & grilled chicken salad,
complete with apple, sunflower seeds, grilled salami
and mounds of goat cheese)

spending time with friends doing nothing
(something i just don't seem to do in the winter)

actually spending time outside during a ferry ride to victoria

transitioning from creamy pasta sauces and salad dressings
to light, olive oil-y sprinklings heavy on herby flavour

spending as much time with my wonderful family & friends
as i can before the big cross-country move!

...today it's a little gloomy outside...
i cannot wait for the sun & the warmth to arrive in full force!

  22. I am now craving all these things! You have such a gentile soul!

  23. Although we've just finished summer, I feel cheated because the weather didn't seem too summer-like here in my part of NZ. But no matter.

    Your photo of the fruit salad looks divine <3

    Warm weather just makes one feel so much more ALIVE!
