First Picnic of the Season

First Picnic of the Season

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous out which means it's finally outdoor season. This seasonal funk I've been in has finally been lifted and I feel whole again. Winters are so hard, dark, and dreary. It really takes a lot of my energy and shoves it into deep corners, hidden by the early nightfall.

I'll be happy when we turn our clocks back this weekend and finally have more sunlight!

First Picnic of the Season

My friend and I decided it was the perfect day to head out to the park and have a picnic! We had all the fixings - apples & strawberries, cucumber & cream cheese sandwiches, amazingly delicious guacamole with lime tortilla chips, crackers, brie cheese & apples, plantains, lemon water, and muffins. Everything was so tasty (shout out to Kirsten for making such a delicious lunch for us)!

After the picnic, we took a walk around and looked at the water. We were lucky enough to meet an adorable puppy named Indy and their owners asked if we wanted to take a photo with him. So sweet!

THANK YOU SPRING for finally showing your face, the sun, and warm weather. I'm looking forward to seeing more of you!
