Good morning from Maine where spring has finally sprung! All week the weather has been fantastic and today is forecasted to be another gorgeous spring day. I’ve been riding my bike outside all week and I’ll be doing that again today. 

Last week I was sick. This week all the other members of my family we’re sick. We’re finally all back to being healthy so we’re going to celebrate by taking our puppy and dog for a little adventure hike tomorrow. 

I hope that you have a great weekend!
