Spring is in the air!

I woke up the other morning to a bright blue Rotterdam sky. Not a cloud in the sky! It was gorgeous. My hyacinth also decided to really bloom as well. Have you smelled on of these things?! It's amazing and totally made my day. Our entire apartment smelled of sweet hyacinth.

Since the weather was so nice, we decided to take a bike ride in the city. Spring is really in the air! And on the ground for that matter as well. Small little tulips are starting to sprout out of the earth; it's a beautiful thing. There are no leaves on the trees yet, but people are happy! The big jackets are stashed away, cafes are moving their chairs outside, and you can feel the energy. I love the seasons! Here are a few pics from our bike ride...

Well, the countdown is finally here...we have 18 days left in Holland. We leave April 3rd. Don't remind me, there's so much to do and I'm still in denial we're leaving. There's a chance we'll be back, but for now we are San Francisco-bound--with a 3-week layover in India. Who said you can't have a honeymoon before the wedding?! Besides, we have a wedding to attend there! 

And yes, some well-deserved beach time after this long, long winter. ;)
