Spring In The Air


Spring in the city is a truly magical time. The streets slowly awaken from its hibernation and fill with life and energy once again. Transition seasons have always been a favorite, and spring holds a special place in my heart because of the beauty from the budding blooms on the cherry blossom trees and the return of peonies on every corner bodega and flower stand.

The city comes back alive again, and I am reminded of why I fell in love in the first place. The energy is intoxicating and the memories made in the warmer months are more than enough to make up for the brutal winters. The beginning of spring marks the season of rooftop and garden parties, outdoor dining in the village, and weekend visits to Central Park for casual strolls and the occasional bike ride.

It's an unforgiving, real, unrelenting place to reside...and yet it's experiences, friendships and lessons learned are absolutely invaluable. It's a place you keep close and dear to your heart...and I wear my heart around my sleeve.

Naturally, New York was the first place that came to mind when choosing the coordinates for the gold cuff bangle from Stamped & Finch. I wanted to choose a place that made so many things happen...from my first time away from home, taking on the real world and pursuing my passions, to the place I fell in love and made everlasting friendships for life.

My time in the city has also fostered a great love of exploration and travel...discovering new neighborhoods and hidden gems has become a favorite past time. This love has inevitably grown into wanderlust...a wanderlust that cannot be satisfied or satiated, but only grows deeper and stronger with every new destination reached. The engraved "wanderlust" bar necklace is a physical ode to the insatiable desire to travel and wearing it keeps all my travel memories close to heart.

On that note, I'm off to D.C. for a few days to check out the cherry blossoms and I am beyond excited to share my experience! Be prepared for more spring posts and cherry blossom overload in the days to come!

With Much Love,
