Let’s dine outside!

With the warm weather FINALLY here, there is nothing like dining outside on a warm spring or summer evening. There is something to be said for dining outdoors.

Finally we can swim!

How did you celebrate the long weekend? Is your pool open yet? Were you able to go swimming? Thankfully the weather stayed nice. We had a beautiful weekend of sunshine and warm weather with only a few drops of rain in between. We took full advantage of this great weather by staying outside, swimming, bbq‘ing and outdoor dining with family and friends. There is something so nice about having an extra day off and really getting to unwind. Would we appreciate 3-day weekends as much if we got them every week?
