Feeling Almost Like Spring
Living near Chicago can make for the cultivation of an interesting wardrobe, since one needs clothes that work from -20 F. all the way up to well over 100. It can be a pain, but it keeps life interesting. Just when the closet feels filled with old, boring clothes we pack them away to sit just long enough that they'll feel like a new wardrobe when they come back out. This year I feel extra blessed! A bunch of my summer clothes were in storage last year and couldn't be found. I was so pleased when my things were found (along with some of my favorite art books!) at the very back of the storage locker a few weeks ago. It was like getting a shipment of custom designed spring clothes; just my size, perfectly suited to my taste. It helped me to feel more normal . . . and just in time for the long over-due warmer weather.
I noticed that the Vermont Country Store is selling my favorite Watercolor Dress again. I would certainly recommend it as an investment for anyone who likes spring colors. But mine - after some 18 months packed away - is the best. It feels like spring. It feels like normal!
