Ok, Kim won. I fell in love with tulips while we were at the tulip festival. I wasn’t a big fan of them originally because I remembered what it was like to grow up with them. Every year, around Mother’s Day, there would be a bouquet of them on the kitchen table. The bouquet would be beautiful for two days and then there’d be petals and pollen all over the table. Unlike peonies, my favourite flowers, tulips just didn’t seem to last longer than a couple days. Of course, the Skagit tulips proved me wrong– after buying a couple bunches as gifts, it turns out the best tulips stay beautifully in bloom for 2+ weeks. Who knew?
Big thank you to Kimmy for taking me to see the gorgeous array of rainbow tulips!! It was totally worth the two hour drive at 7am, especially since there were massive backups on the highway coming into Skagit Valley as we were leaving. If you’re planning a trip to see the tulips, Kim posted an amazing set of tips for how to best prep for it!
P.S. This Eva Franco dress has been hiding in my closet for a couple years now. It was originally on sale at Anthropologie for $300+ and I only ever got a chance to wear it once. It’s now marked down and available online for $140 but I’m thinking about parting with it. It’s a size 2, if anyone is interested.
