Spring Love List


It’s been a raw day in New York – cold, rainy, and grey. Spring still feels miles away, but it’s almost April, and I love to make a list of all the things I’m looking forward to each season. Here’s what I’ve got planned for the next three months…

  • Sit under the cherry blossoms in Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
  • Make my own apricot preserves, superior to Smucker’s.
  • Find the perfect spring jacket that’s not leather, a trench, or a bomber.
  • Escape to the Catskills with C in May.
  • Try my hand at making ceviche.
  • See Bob Dylan in concert in Port Chester.
  • Spend a mother-daughter day in the city, complete with brunch, a museum, and some shopping.
  • Find a cool pair of loafers I can actually pull off.
  • Learn how to make a French 75, using fresh-squeezed lime juice (instead of usual lemon) with the gin and champagne.
  • Spend a rainy afternoon with giant popcorn and sodas, seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
  • Pick fresh strawberries and perfect this strawberry bourbon tart.

What’s on your mind for this spring?
