A Taste of Summer

Welp, we are almost at the halfway marker for February - everyone's least favorite month. I think the last week is officially the straw that broke the camel's back. My nose is red and chapped, I'm tired of blowing it, my coat desperately needs to be dry cleaned, I'm pretty sure my Hunter boots are leaking, I am sick of my SmartWool socks, all of my tights have holes in them, and I am about to breakup with my space heater. But the good news is, spring is a little over a month away. The days are getting longer, it's no longer dark when I leave the office, and we might even be getting a day of 47 degree weather! Hay oh! Bust out the sunscreen and bikinis, Chicago.

In my desperate need to feel a little closer to summer, this morning I made myself a comforting breakfast of toast with goat cheese and Froehlich's tart cherry jam, a snack I ate over and over while vacationing in Michigan. Upon my first bite, I found myself at ease and warmed by the thought of summer. It's really not that far away, now is it? Now might be as good a time as any to bust out some of those summer preserves in your pantry, you'll feel yourself perking up at first bite, I promise.
