    Love seeing it at street level.

  15. Happy first day of Spring Joanna.. I look at these pictures and laugh at myself for just turning thirty and still not knowing how to ride a bike. I try to chalk it up to being a city kid but it’s really no excuse. Your family snaps on the bike and these images give me hope.. Lol.
    Dont forget to celebrate Macaron NYC day (first taste for me & my boys).. We plan to stroll through Bryant park

    Great post! I went to Downtown From Behind – lo & behold there you are! I enjoyed reading the blurb about you & your hub. Happy first day of spring!

  17. Happy first day of spring to you! Love the photo with the giant bouquet of flowers – so lovely! -Katherine

  18. I’m so glad you just reminded me of this! Now I feel like going outside and frolicking around on this sunny day!


  19. Love the flower delivery! It’s been cold here in San Francisco, but I can’t wait to hop on my bike!

  20. Love that vintage bikes are such the fad! Love seeing everyone gettin out and about. Such a shame that in Australia we have to ruin the look with ugly helmets…but then again, protected noggin is a win!

  21. Can’t wait to ring in Spring with the first bike ride of the year tonight! Love the photo with the flowers:)

  25. definitely a day to celebrate! even though our winter in SD was pretty mild, i’m welcoming this new season with open arms! a beautiful time of year.

  26. I am loving the pictures of people on bikes from behind. It makes me want to go buy a beach cruiser and, well, cruise to the beach!

  32. haha, meredith, good point! thanks for the tip! :)

  33. Hooray for the first day of spring and for shorts and sandals and bike rides and blooming flowers and trees. I SO love this time of year.

    But no hooray for our baby who seems content to keep chillin’ in my belly at almost 41 weeks pregnant. Doesn’t she know just how glorious it is this time of year?

    Be BORN already, spring chicken! :-)

  34. Anna, those are TOMS wedges in the Sartorialist photo. They are ridiculously comfy–I have three pairs now! Jo, they would be a great option for chasing Toby around NYC. And I don’t think that Oscar or Owen are likely to be wearing them ;)

  35. love that spring is here! especially because that means summer is next. my favorite is the one with the huge delivery of flowers!

    I love the shoes the lady is wearing in the first pic – just what I need for London spring/summer as someone who is short but has no tolerance for ‘proper’ heels!
