The Florist

The sun is shining today and Spring is definitely in the air. If you are in the sun it is warm enough to take off your coat! We went on a walk this morning and picked up some of those pretty pink ranunculus from the florist down the street. I love how all the root systems are exposed in the glass vessels. Makes the flowers even prettier I think.

Spring is so close I can feel it! The one thing about living in cold weather, you really appreciate spring…unlike those ingrates in California.

    I love flower shops like those..beautiful blooms laid out simply and elegantly. I love the hydrangea in the last picture–my grandma always had hydrangea and I now have one in her honor (about that same color).

    I love your blog before, but now I L-O-V-E your blog now that you are in Paris!! Would love to hear more about your life in Paris – how you are adjusting, how did you find that cute apartment, what your daily routine is like? It's like daydreaming every time I check your blog! Ahhhh….

    Your making me want to run home to pack up my bags and jump on the first flight to Paris. When my mom and I were there 2 years ago we were blown away by the beautiful flower shops – so much so that I wanted to by flowers for our hotel room and I did ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love following your journey in Paris. Keep up the beautiful posts! xx

    I am just dying for spring here in Ohio too! Maybe shopping for flowers, or at least looking at these ones you've posted will help curb my need for green!

    I love reading about your French adventures. I am learning French this year, because my boyfriend speaks it fluently, and I feel a tad more connected with the French culture through your blog! Also, cute striped shirt! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the exposed roots too! Especially the single hydrangea in the last picture– what a beautiful idea and perfect for Spring…so close but so far away (at least in NYC;):)

    Jordan, what is the name of the florist? It's gorgeous! I'm dreaming of Paris in the spring… It was only 38 degrees when I drove to work this morning in Seattle.

    Just so lovely! I too am finding myself with a precarious urge to live in Franceโ€”and I live in Hawai'i! Ahhh the romance of it all… I'd be interested to read more about how you guys are making it work. Congrats on taking the leap for sure!
