spring has sprung

in the form of a bulgarian tradition.

in case you need a refresher, you can read about my first foray into my bulgarian roots HERE.

once again, adriana has tied me up with her foreign traditions thus transforming my winter blahs into sunshine and flowers. i mean, this is a much better way to celebrate spring than with old puxatawney phil. sorry phil, but those bulgarians get accessories when all you provide us with is a fleeting shadow and a hole in the ground. i can’t support that local custom, so i’m going global with this one.

thanks again for widening my horizons and teaching me the ways of the world, adi! i feel both stylish and cultured.

    Now I want a spring bracelet. No worries, I have some yarn, so I can whip one up. I love the idea of celebrating the seasons in your own way. Making your own traditions.

    To me Spring already started. Trees are blooming and all I am waiting for now is boating weather. Which should be any day now!

    Happy Spring!

    wait. it’s not spring yet?!?!? then why is it 82 and sunny outside? Well, i guess living in the seventh circle of hell does have its advantages :)

    hate me yet?

    • abby mumford Says:

      nah. i don’t hate you because i don’t have to put in a fence when it’s 82 degrees outside….

    • adriana Says:

      we do hate you! :) since you asked :) also, technically (and technicality is our last resort, we who are still frozen solid over here) 82 doesn’t even qualify for spring. That’s full-blown summer :)

    • abby mumford Says:

      i do agree with the assessment that 82 degrees is SUMMER and not so much spring. although, i suppose those temps are considered spring like when you’re from florida.

    1. it cools down at night…last night it got down to 60
    2. 82 is definitely spring weather. if you dont believe me, come down here in june and see just how fast you will melt
    3. if i was up in the great white north with you all people would think i was some wannabe magician who was trying to live in ice…not that i actually froze solid the moment i stepped ff the plane.
    4. i kind of wish you would hate me…it makes me smile :)
    5. really i have nothing else to say…but since this is friday…i have to have five things to say about…well anything. yep. thats me. the friday five ninja #nindarFTW

    • abby mumford Says:

      i do melt in 82 degree weather, so that’s why it’s best not to have too much of it…and you are WARPED that you want me to hate you, but if that’s what’ll get you through the day, fine. i detest you and your florida grown sunshine.

    What a cool tradition — so pretty! Waaay better than that rodent, Phil. ;)

    • abby mumford Says:

      i know! in this case, it’s definitely better to be foreign. it makes the waiting for spring so much easier.
