Spring is not the most-loved season in Maine. It is vague time. Not cold, but not quite warm. Our trees aren’t white with snow, but they aren’t green yet either. There’s plenty of cold rain, and even some hail. After months (and months) of deep, shoulder-hunching cold, everyone here wants true warmth. In the last few weeks I’ve heard many people say, “I just want it to be HOT.” And that’s what happens in this state. We go from winter to summer in a flash. Suddenly it’s 80 degrees, it’s the Fourth of July, and summer is rocking.  Every year, I look back and wonder what happened to that time between winter and summer – how did I miss those months?

Our spring may not be the flower blooming, cherry blossom, gentle breeze kind of spring they get further south, but this year, I am determined to appreciate the season. I am observing and taking note. There are small, folded buds on the oak trees. The grass is so green, and the tulips at my parents’ house are tiny heroes, pushing up through the black soil. The ocean isn’t the deep blue of summer yet, but it has a silvery layer that makes my chest ache.

Spring is here.

Some our favorite cocktails in town are made by our friend Nan’l, also known as the Bearded Lady. After the first sip, his drinks have been described as “amazing,” “delicious,” “rocket sauce,” and “holy sh*t.” Nan’l has worked at various establishments in Portland, and we are super excited that he is about to open his own bar, The Jewel Box, around the corner from our studio. We are also excited that More & Co. had the chance to design his new identity. First we loved his drinks, then we worked for him, now we will sit at his bar. As it should be.

The Jewel Box is currently raising money through Kickstarter. We just donated and you can do the same here. There are two weeks left to fund this project. Let’s do it!
