  1. The trees are finally almost full of leaves!

  2. The flowers are coming out now that the leaves have largely unfolded, and they are a damn revelation. I stood downwind from a flowering tree on Saturday and drank that amazingness in.

  3. Every time it’s nice enough for me to leave the house without a coat, I feel like I’ve forgotten something important, but when I figure out that it’s the coat I don’t need, I feel a lightness outside that I never feel in winter.

  4. I am grateful for the makers of Pokémon GO, because, even though the game feels mostly pointless and I make Aidan stop several times when we walk anywhere so I can battle at some gym or catch mons or exclaim about this new one I caught that is oh-my-god-so-cute, it’s had me pushing my physical limits more, and my endurance for long walks has increased over the last couple of months.

  5. Aged white cheddar.
