This morning, the neighbor’s blooming magnolia tree was illuminated by the glow of their bathroom light. Seen through a tangle of still-bare branches, the pink and golden were a welcome reminder of all the spring warmth that’s still to come.
Here, a few other dreamy things to admire as we unfurl into spring:
Seeds for growing flowers to eat,
garden gloves for protecting hands,
and a hori hori for rooting around in windowbox dirt.
Plus an ideal canvas tool tote for stashing everything.
Pants cozy enough for cool mornings and breezy enough for warmer afternoons,
Gardenia hand creme for work-day sniffing
and an accompanying tube wringer for the most satisfying of mundane experiences.
A green tea pot for good cheer
and copious cups of Early Tea.
Plus, three perfect spring colors for lips, cheeks, and lids (minus any plastic waste). (The code TEALEAVES gives you 20% off!)

In an effort to ground this make-believing in something much more down to earth, here’s something to do today:
1. To co-sponsor the Office of Gun Violence Prevention Act (H.R.1699 / S.951). This act would establish a permanent office in the DOJ designed to implement a national strategy to end gun violence.
*The article and imagery is very disturbing, as is living in a country with a constant threat of gun violence.
