I can't lie. I'd hoped to wake up to the telltale sound of New York City sanitation truck snow-plows hitting the bump in the road right outside my window. That's the surest sign that there's enough snow for that last trip down the hill. In fact, I had hoped the park would look something like this:
Honestly, there is more snow on the weather-app on my phone than in the park across the road. I am a little bit disappointed, because snow has been such an inspiration for many of our Kær textiles. In March 2015, the last snowstorm of the year had me inspired for this dress. And in late 2014, when we were in Denmark for our wedding, the snow covering a drying hydrangea in my mother's backyard became the inspiration for the first Kær textile of all.
But it's hard to be disappointed for too long. Nature has surprises for us all the time. And I'm also really looking forward to springtime, sailing, and outdoor yoga. Every season has its beauty, its advantages and disadvantages, and since weather is really not something you can control (or - it appears - predict), better to just enjoy whatever comes along.
See you in the park?
