The Great Outdoors

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Good morning, lovelies! The weather was just so gorgeous yesterday that it got me dreaming of all of the outdoor fun that will soon be in store. Picnics, walks in the park, al fresco dining. I can't wait to soak it all in. Here's hoping that spring decides to stick around this time :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day! xoxo

Kavery said...

Brings to mind The Secret Garden-how lovely all that greenery is

Julip Made said...

Lovee these images! My fave date was a picnic in Central Park with the Boy. Al fresco eating definitely makes the food taste better. That and actually growing the food yourself!

Tamra of walkswithBella said...

I can't wait for rooftop bars and sidewalk dinners. The picture in the middle with the white couches kind of reminds me of GPH rooftop and Barolo brunches. Speaking of al fresco dining - do any of the NYC bloggers get together? A summer brunch would be super fun!
