I wanted to share with you how excited I am that spring (at least feels) is just around the corner! The days are starting getting longer and the sun is shining more frequently, and it feels like there’s a sense of renewal and freshness in the air. After the long and chilly winter, I can’t wait to spend more time outdoors and soak up some sunshine. I think it’s important to take advantage of the nicer weather and make the most of it, whether that means going for a walk in the park, having a picnic with friends, or simply sitting outside with a good book.
