Yesterday I threw on my pink sunnies as I was jetting to and from places (err more like schlepping… always), but it felt oh so good. Sunshine! Finally! The fact that my body wasn’t chilled to the bone the instant I walked outside was such a treat. We’ve still got March but with trips to California and Mexico on the horizon, I think I can make it to spring! Who’s with me?

I’m off to DC to spend the weekend throwing my bestie’s baby shower and visiting with dear old friends. After a week of mountains of monotous paperwork and business tasks (hello taxes), I’m so ready to focus on things completely unrelated to work for the next few days. We’ve been plotting and planning the shower menu for weeks so I’m beyond excited to hit the store tomorrow suburban style, spend Friday night prepping food, and bring the whole thing together on Saturday. A version of this salad and these treats will be in the mix. Here are a few fun links…. have a good one! xx
