Yesterday was lovely! The weather was just beautiful (we're talking no humidity, a light breeze and sunny skies) and Mr. Jackson was able to spend the day with us. His work schedule has been all over the place lately and we've become accustomed to seeing him only during the evening hours. We escaped to my favorite Gainesville neighborhood, took an afternoon stroll, ate dinner outside and managed to squeeze in a post-meal swinging session. This is my definition of heaven!

These emerald colored butterfly shorts, which I scored on mega-sale (J Crew is having a store/site-wide 25% off sale right now!), make me so ready for Summer! They're the perfect length and the sweetest pattern. I can already see that they're going to be a staple as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer!

p.s. Can we talk about Lorelai's cute-as-a-button mini purse?! We picked it up this Sunday and she's been wearing it ever since. There may or may not have been a couple of naps taken while wearing this bag!

What's your definition of the perfect Spring day?
