Isn’t how funny how everything seems to look new and different in the sun? I guess that is part of the joy of the spring, or rather leap, into summer: watching a complete rebirth of your surroundings as everything, and everyone, wakes up from a long, VERY long, winters nap. And let me tell you New York, hibernation is just not a good look for you: best to stick to summer shades and much warmer tones…
