I Think I'm Turning Japanese
Hanami, or the act of viewing the beautiful blooming cherry trees (sakura), is upon us! When Dan and I were in Kyoto a few days ago, we saw a small group of blossoming trees at one of the smaller shrines, which made me very excited that the rest would soon be exploding!

Yesterday, when I arrived at work, I noticed that the trees outside the window had indeed exploded. I took the time to snap some iPhone pictures, which actually turned out pretty beautiful against the bright blue sky. 

I am so excited that my mom will be able to see all the sakura! It's pretty perfect timing!

There really isn't much else to say about them... they're just really pretty!

Gorgeous! Really "so Japan". Yes, I'm excited to see all of these beauties first hand!!! We have three flowering plum and cherry trees in the backyard and I can't stop staring at them before I leave for work. I am definitely looking forward to viewing the "real" explosion of blossoms!
