i bought new sunglasses! now if only the sun would come out and hang around for awhile so that i can wear them outside! i also bought a new yellow skirt...yes, L- i always need a new skirt ;0)

L brought home some gorgeous tulips and ranunculus in shades of orange (wedding planning has incited a serious love for all things orange lately) for me yesterday, too! if i could i'd be carrying those around with me at all times so at least it can be spring by me!
