This weekend was a bit of a roller coaster. I was in a hit and run–thankfully was minor and my car only suffered some superficial scrapes and I wasn’t hurt. Then I scored a beautiful blue and white ginger jar lamp at my favorite antique store… which I shattered into a million pieces less than 24 hours later. I won’t even pretend to say I handled things well.
Taking my mom’s advice and resisting the urge to pull the covers high and just stay in bed, I got out of the house for some fresh air and was greeted with a beautiful spring day and DC in full bloom. The city really is at its best in the spring and my mood was instantly lifted. It’s like the late great Lilly Pulitzer said: “Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink.”
