It’s finally Spring in Virginia! While we experience all four seasons here, Spring's mild temperatures and inviting blooms make it the favorite. The city comes to life again as people are looking for ways to get outside with their families. Here at Goulet HQ, our team is excited for the fresh air and warm temperatures as we’re keeping our office doors open and sitting outside again for lunch.
With the change in season and style, we see bright colors begin to emerge. You know -- the ones we see in dyed Easter eggs and featured in the copious amounts of candy consumed this time of year. Subtle, pastel colors also fill store shelves and remind us that Winter has indeed come to an end. So, what better time to refresh your pen and ink rotation as well? We’re excited to share our top pen and ink picks to help you usher in Spring.
