Spring fever.

"I feel like everyone just got out of jail." - my friend Dave, on the sudden abundance of people wandering the city, enjoying the nice weather.

On my run last Saturday, I noticed something different about Central Park. Compared with the Saturday before, it looked like almost a completely different park - the grass was radiantly green, trees went from barren to blossoming, flowers I didn't even know were there were blooming. In short, it was as if the park itself had finally decided it was officially Spring, and the difference was stunning. I have to say, I approve. I mean, it's not like Central Park is ugly during the winter, but now it's a positively gorgeous urban oasis.

And of course, what better landmark of spring than the prom? Dave's roommate Luke's birthday was on Saturday, so they threw a prom-themed birthday party. Luckily, I found a sweet dress at Salvation Army at the last minute. There was dancing, there was cake, and I was voted the Prom Queen. Awesome party? Yes. And a great way to kick off what promises to be a fantastic summer.

More pictures of the festivities can be found here.


  1. Ha! I love it! Congrats on the Prom Queen. That's something to add to your resume. So have you heard of this blog? It's pictures of random people in the city. Maybe they should have shot a photo of you in your prom dress in all your glory. that would have been awesome.

  2. you are so hot.... i want you. i mean, i want your dress!!! hmm, looks like prom was so much fun!!! jealous. slightly jealous.

  3. "There is only one master key and one spare key to the office. Dwight has both. When I said 'Dwight, if you die, how will we get into the office?' he said: 'If I die, the rest of you have been dead for weeks.'"

    Prom looked like a blast. I definitely have to come to NY some time!

  4. Remember when we didn't used to be friends? That sucked. Thank you for your sweet comments on my are so great! You look amazing, by the way.
