happy spring!






happy first day of spring! happy weekend! i thought it only appropriate to include photographs from our trip to the garden shop last weekend. we purchased trays for seedlings, moss for making terrariums & one dozen local eggs. it is such a beautiful spot & i hope to stop by more often.

on another note, it is cold, dreary & rainy here. very different from yesterday. we spent most of yesterday outside, soaking up some of the rays & reading books in the park.

also, today marks the first saturday of the farmer's market. due to the awful conditions outside, i'm not sure if they'll be out there this morning. i'm hoping for some fresh salad greens & a few root vegetables, but i would hate to see the farmers out in this mess.

& finally... i have a request to make. over spring break, i would like to compile a spring music mix of sorts. i tend to listen to the same things over & over again, but i'm willing to change! & need a change, really. so, let me know your favorite songs for spring/in general. i'd really love some of your recommendations.
love,
natalie

You should listen to Au Revoir Simone, I especially like their song "Don't See the Sorrow"

You should listen to some Joanna Newsom. I'm kind of obsessed with her lately.

Definitely agree with oneekimo... The She and Him album is wonderful and can be listened to in full at the npr music exclusive (link below)

Also Meaghan Smith, I think you and luke would enjoy this too (music I would put with your photography actually...) Here is yet ANOTHER npr link, but you can here some music here too.
