After one of the coldest winters in recent history, today’s deliciously balmy 34 degree weather was much appreciated. Compared to the months of needing one to avoid frost bite on the ears, today a hat was only necessary for fashionable purposes. People meandered down the sidewalks instead of scuttling into stores simply to stay warm. Why, we all walked with our heads held high, necks no longer needing to bend in order to protect our faces from biting winds. Rumor even has it our seasonal patience grew three sizes this day 😉
And thus I celebrated by enjoying brunch with a friend and bopping around the South End of Burlington with no real plans except to relish my first relaxing walk in ages.
(also, I could take photos without my fingers freezing off, so, enjoy!)
Walking to a yoga class I was subbing for and staring longingly at Bento, my new favorite Sushi to-go spot. Soon, belly. Soon.
Peeping at this beautiful bag in the window of Liebling. Yes it costs more than my rent, but I’m definitely considering putting my bonus money toward it, because hot damn I worked hard last year!
Poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, house-made corn beef hash, home fries, and a Cosmosa from Sneakers in Winooski. It’s the one brunch spot you want to have a wait for because you can run over to the Monkey House bar and down a mimosa (or 2…) before your table is ready.
So filling I had extras to take home! Also stopped to get a hot chocolate with a shot of espresso to help keep me from falling into an all afternoon sleep coma.
I took some artsy-fartsy back alley routes on my errands. Hearts were everywhere- I think it’s a good sign.
Speaking of signs: this is the worst thing about spring; when the snow melts you realize no one has been adhering to this common courtesy rule. Bleck.
A beautiful ivy-covered building whose window you probably don’t want to see if you’re tripping…I’d imagine.
Green tea and my new coffee table book titled “Love”. Not a bad way to end my walkabout.
