cherry blossoms.

on the first day of spring, eleanor and i walked around the tidal basin and admired all of the beautiful cherry blossoms. i can’t believe they are already peaking this week! thanks alot, mild winter. i just wish they’d last until june. they make me happy.

  6. I love her little SaltWaters! My siblings and I used to wear those back in the 80s/90s. You could only buy them on the West Coast, so my mother used to trace our feet every year and mail the prints to my grandparents to buy our sandals for us. The highlight of each summer was getting to pick what color we wanted, and we wore them every day :)

    you already know this, but eleanor is absolutely adorable.

    i miss living in seattle because the cherry blossoms there were amazing, and we had a few trees on our backyard. definitely one of my favorite things.

    These photos get me so excited about the cherry blossoms here in Toronto (High Park). But I hear Washington has a superb showing when they bloom!
