Spring is here: trip to Phipps

"Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade."

This quote has never been truer than the past few days! Last week it was warm and sunny and then we woke up this week with snow! I never know if I should wear a coat or not, haha! 

Thankfully, I have found a spot close to campus that feels like Spring everyday! I always love visiting Phipps Conservatory, but my last visit was extra amazing. The Spring Flower Show has transformed the feeling of the entire place. This year's theme celebrates rain and its importance. 

As you walk into the main room, there are umbrellas covering the ceiling. Rain noises are surrounding you, coming from the various fountains throughout the conservatory. And you are instantly relaxed. 

So relaxed that studying doesn't seem as much of a chore. Surrounded by gorgeous colors and delicious scents makes you want to come back everyday (which I plan to do, hehe).
