On Saturday I met a co-worker in Old Town and had brunch. It was delicious--we split strawberry/nutella crepes (perhaps my favorite food item) and a quiche. It was a gloomy and cold day, but I walked past the farmers' market on my way to my car and simply had to buy some overpriced tulips. Here they are, brightening my apartment. I'm sitting on the sofa right now as I type this with the tulips in view. Every time I see them I smile. It's still bitterly cold out, but the sun is shining brightly and my lovely tulips remind me that spring is coming!
