the season of twitterpation

It's finally spring in Minneapolis....sort of. Last Saturday included a rousing game of kickball and more than a few glasses of wine on my friend's porch. And though there will be plenty of gloomy days before sundress season, I'm officially spring fevered. A few of the songs that are stuck in my head at the moment...

"Mon Amour Ne Me Quitte Pas" from Les Parapluies de Cherbourg...This is what our weather looks like at the moment, but this beautifully sad love song is also a great argument for black liquid liner, hair bows, and of course, umbrellas.

The Cardigans "Lovefool," which makes me want to skip and dance in the sunshine. In the 90s.

Goldfrapp "A&E" stirs up memories of the forest by my mom's house in Nebraska. It's always lush and full of deer, and often, roosting turkeys. Which is a less romantic memory, but one I hold dear nonetheless.

Emma Bunton "Maybe," which is just the cutest video ever.

"Singing in the Rain," featuring the incomparable Gene Kelly, is sure to put a spring in your step no matter the season.

La parapluie is my favorite french word. So cute and happy sounding. Very fitting, as a tool to protect oneself from rain makes me very happy. As much as I love the dreary weather, the curly hair seems to misbehave.
