Happy first day of Spring! Here in Chicago, it’s still cloudy and cold and the memory of snow has yet to melt away. Having been down south less than a week ago, I’m struggling to adjust after wandering around in shades and sundresses! So, I’ve dug up some of my favorite palm tree photos to help get us all through what I can only hope is the final stretch of chill.
As much as it’s associated with love, Valentine’s Day always seems to be one of our more divisive holidays — singles vs couples, romantic love vs friendships. While the origins of the day are dark, the underlying message of love still holds true and that’s what matters. Especially now, when fear and judgement are rampant, I’d argue that love in any form is not to be balked at.
