Sunday was the first day of Spring, woohoo! I've finally adjusted to the "Spring forward" time change and we're working on some fun Spring-themed things to share with you. I am loving all the blossoms popping out along the city sidewalks. The smell of jasmine blooming in San Francisco is seriously intoxicating.
Speaking of Spring smells, I have this thing with lilacs. Having grown up in the Midwest with a flower-loving mother, they are an integral part of spring for me. They're connected to some very nostalgic part of my brain and there are about a billion memories that collide whenever I smell them. I carried the ones pictured above around the house and studio with me for an entire week!
They inspired me to start a running list (in addition to lilacs, of course) of favorite scents: Lavender, paper, peonies, tomatoes & basil, coffee!, peeling citrus fruit, fall leaves, movie theater popcorn, etc. etc. etc.
What are some of your favorite smells--springlike or not?
