Cosy corners and sweet sundaes♥

Late March has arrived and spring has come with it.  I have been driving with windows down, listening to Discovery and Vampire Weekend.♥♥  Ah, this wonderful weather has made me ten times happier than usual and it has just been absolutely wonderful!  I have been quite busy this past week, hence the lack of a post, but it had been a fun busy full of cherished memories!  I am on Spring Break now and I can see that it is going to be grand and it will be a good week to enjoy the beautiful weather!  (Rachel has some posts with lovely Spring photos to come this week.) 
Several weekends ago Rachel and I got together at my house on a gloomy, rainy saturday and spent a lovely calm day together.  It was raining, but that made it so much better because we were all cosy inside.  We watercoloured nearly all day and talked of art, fashion, and travel.  How perfectly magical would it be to travel to Egypt and ride camels through the curious desert, or take a gondola ride through a river in Venice? 
We had a small lunch of tasty smoothies and delicious salads.  Not to boast or anything, but Rachel and I have quite the knack for smoothies!  Our salads were prepared in bright coloured yellow and turquoise bowls and garnished with raspberry vinigrette, walnuts, cranberries, and sprinkled with cheese.
Our creativity and inspiration came in a steady flow, as our paintbrushes swept across the page and filled it with colour.  As we listened to the beautiful Age of Adz by Sufjan Stevens we were inspired by the orchestra and sound of his calming voice.
The evening came to an end, but not before a trip to our dear Grandma's cosy cottage. 
We made spring cards around our Grandma's classic oak table and planned a grand sleepover to be held over Spring Break.  We sat on Grandma's comfy blue couch and watched old 70's Nancy Drew episodes just like old times.  As it snowed outside we were snug in her warm, glowing house eating delicious sundaes.  We admired the splendor of her cosy house and thought of how wonderful her lake cottage would be come summer.

Hope your weekend is beautiful and you enjoy the wonderful weather to its fullest (Rachel and I are planning to have a photo shoot).  Perhaps have a picnic outside or take a walk through the park.  I will be enjoying my Spring Break to its fullest and hope to have lovely times that will be cherished.  
Erika and Rachel Xx
