This unseasonably warm weather in NYC has been awesome/terrifying (hi, global warming apocalypse!) and it has me excited that spring is just around the corner. Spring in NYC is such an awesome time – the days get longer and warmer and you can just feel the whole mood of the city lift. One of my favorite memories from last spring was taking the kids to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens to see the cherry blossoms. We went the weekend before their annual Cherry Blossom Festival (you can check their website for details) which was a little less crowded. The cherry blossoms were so incredibly gorgeous! Declan was in awe of all the “pink trees” and we had so much fun running around the Cherry Esplanade. That day we took some of my favorite photos.
