It's spring, it's spring, it's spring! Looking at the 10-day weather forecast it looks like the rest of April will be in the low 60's. I've decided that the perfect everyday temperature, in my books, is a mostly sunny, 68 degrees. It's nice enough to lay around in the sun during the day and beautiful enough to pull on a light cardigan during the evenings. I am so ready for the spring. 

On Sunday, I met up with one of my best friends from high school and we spent three hours walking all over central park from the Upper East Side to the Upper West Side and then back. I didn't wear the most appropriate shoe wear but I made the trek anyway since I was determined to enjoy the spring weather. I don't usually explore the Upper West Side these days (no one likes to go crosstown, amirite?) but it was a nice change of pace. My friend was more familiar with the area since he attended Columbia University for four years. We spent a few minutes just lounging around in the Lincoln Center Plaza before grabbing frozen yogurt at 16 Handles (my favorite frozen yogurt spot) and calling it a day. My Sunday afternoon could not have been more perfect.
