Don’t those fresh flowers look amazing? This image seriously makes us giddy for spring, and are so happy that it’s right around the corner. After looking at this, we’re contemplating popping into a flower shop just to get a good whiff. Perhaps this weekend we can make a mini resolution to ourselves do something fresh? Go for a long walk to breathe in the clean air, eat something bright and from the earth, try some hot yoga to feel revived, start a new book — anything! Hope you all have a lovely couple of days, see you on Monday!
