After three consecutive weeks of snow, rain, and wintery conditions, spring weather has finally arrived! Friday afternoon’s beautiful weather brought us out of hibernation for the first time this year. I kicked up my feet and caught up on some reading from my lawn chair while Emerson napped; later we played in the yard, picked up sticks, raked, grilled, and enjoyed dinner alfresco. The combination of blue skies and warm sun with the absence of wind and bugs created ideal spring conditions. With many fun events planned for the coming weeks, I think the blog is coming back to life as well!
