The Year of the Horse, marching forward (PT I)

In-between Polar Vortexes, New Jersey was given a break this weekend. Bright, sunny, 50-degree days feel like a gift, and I tried to make the most of them.

Adventure time! So excite! Much happy!


It looked like the cloud was smoke from that chimney!
First stop in Princeton, NJ: thrifting. The weather had us ready for straw hats and sunglasses.


Soooooo pretty. It's not spring yet but. I am ready for sheer, flowy things.

Drool-inspiring tarts (and some espresso for me) at  Chez Alice.

The sun seemed so foreign--it's been a long, gloomy winter. It was nice to have to squint in the sun, though. It was a pleasure to amble through the Princeton University campus.






We maybe spent the longest time at the circle of statues honoring the Chinese zodiac, sculpted by Ai Weiwei.


In our group we had one person born in the Year of the Rooster:

People born in the Year of the Rooster are deep thinkers, capable, and talented. They like to be busy and are devoted beyond their capabilities and are deeply disappointed if they fail.
And one wise Monkey:
 People born in the year of the monkey are witty, intelligent and have a magnetic personality. Personality traits like mischievousness, curiosity, and cleverness make them very naughty. Those born in the year of the monkey are fast learners and crafty opportunists. They have many interests and need partners who are capable of stimulating them. 

I am a Tiger.

The lives of sentimental people born in the year of the tiger are usually unconventional and unrestrained when they are young. For some of them, this situation never changes. Perhaps this is because they are happy-go-lucky people, think there can be no practical benefits and they are fearless.
