The Effervescence of Spring!

I know I do a "spring has sprung!" post every year but every year in Seattle the spring is surprising.  After the long wet doldrums of January and February, that first sunny day with bright yellow daffodils and coral-pink tulips is a shock to the system.  

I'm sure everyone on my Instagram feed is sick to death of my cherry blossom photos but I just can't get over them.  Ever.

They are so..exuberant!  The ones on the University of Washington campus are fairly famous, for good reason:
It's a giant crowded party under the trees, but I don't begrudge anyone this little slice of paradise.  I prefer Green Lake myself:
White ones:
And pink ones:
And tulip trees:
Ahhh spring, I'm so glad you're here!

Seattle had a few sunny days last week, which I tried to take full advantage of.  One day I went on a midday run with some friends down to the Seattle Sculpture Park.
So glorious.  That's water in the background and mountains behind that.  Moments like that make me think "I actually get to LIVE here!"  Yay!

Easter was another gloriously sunny day.  Easter gets a separate post because the photos are so amazing.  The Easter Bunny really outdid himself this year, so here's just a little teaser:
 Hope your spring is being glorious wherever you are.
