On the occasion of this special day, I'm making note of things as I sit and write this post to you, my readers.

Happy Saturday all! I hope you are all enjoying the start of a wonderful weekend as spring has officially sprung, our days are getting longer, and we are starting to plan for the spring and summer season ahead! I don't know about you guys, but I'm a reasonably busy gal... Eating well on limited time is always a challenge - especially when we want to be outside…
