Happy Monday, NYC! How glorious was it having that extra hour of sunlight today?! If you were in the city yesterday, you are likely feeling incredibly optimistic that warmer weather and happier times are right around the corner. I spent most of my Sunday outside, jumping the gun in less than ideal layers with my face tilted gleefully towards the hint of warm rays. I even bought a bathing suit. Good vibes for a fun week ahead!
