It’s Spring here in Baltimore, and weather it’s getting warmer or colder where you are I hope that today is marvelous for you. This is the first year in a long time that Charlotte and I won’t be able to complete our tradition of getting Rita’s frozen ice and our picture taken with the Easter Bunny on the equinox. I’m sad, but we’ll just do it another day. Tonight is Joe and Brooke’s birthday party and I’m leaving straight from there to go to Connecticut for the Monarch Workshop all weekend. Before I depart, I’ll give you some ideas to celebrate this season!

Watch the sunrise Check out yard and estate sales Visit DC to see the Cherry Blossoms Open all the windows in your house Sketch some nature Get the sweet stuff out of a honeysuckle Do something drastic to your hairMake your own Spring to do listTie-dye something you can wearUse something delicious to make popsicles Draw with sidewalk chalkHang a prism from your rear-view mirror
