I can tell Spring is almost here. The cherry blossoms have started blooming on my hillside – check my favorite faux cherry blossom look-alike branches here. The Robins have shown up at my bird feeder, and my favorite house plant – the Ficus Audrey has sprouted a ton of new growth. Plus, the air is getting warmer and is, even more, inviting than usual here in San Francisco.

Get out there and enjoy it, if ya can. I know I am. xoxoxo.
