When those tulips start popping up all over the place in April they make it reeeeally hard to be mad about anything, don’t you think? They are just so colorful and happy and help to thaw my cold black heart that has been frozen solid on account of all the times it was -8 degrees outside and I couldn’t feel my eyeballs. But now, there are tulips! And we can feel our eyeballs just fine! What a world.
Plus, all of this tulip loveliness means bare legs, the perfect sandal (like these beauties from Hush Puppies), comfy sundresses (like this sunny number from Bluish & Co), spending time out in soft, green grass (do you remember how good that stuff is?), and frolicking! Tulips are a sure sign that you should get out there and frolic your little heart out.
So, I say thank you to the tulips, for being little red and yellow and orange reminders that life doesn’t always have to be a frozen tundra of sadness. And even though winter is sure to come around again, there is always ice cream for that. I mean really, ice cream is just the tulips of winter.
Happy tulip season, friends!
