March is here! How did that happen? How time flies by...
After a gray, gray February in Berlin
and the darkest, most sunlight deprived winter in the past 100 years (no kidding!)
we are all overjoyed that March has been bringing lots of blue sky so far!
Those dark wintery days required lots of special treats, like secret supper club dinners
beautiful coffee dates with friends
and happy Asian fusion Bento boxes!
I found more needed color just walking around the streets
noticing funny handmade masks
bright orange and blue shopping carts
window displays of tupperware rainbows
and billboard sign collages.
Yes, Berlin, I love you. But please don't send me another dark winter like this one again.
Thank you March for bringing on the sun!
Have you been noticing any early signs of spring lately?
p.s. - I read a lovely interview with a Milan based illustrator Olimpia Zagnoli yesterday on the Great Discontent, maybe you will enjoy it too here.
And - have you signed up for my monthly newsletter? This month's theme is "sprout" and we'll be celebrating all things springtime, with recipes and more inspiration. (The "passion" issue will be arriving very soon!) Sign up to get your copy here. xo
