Did you “spring forward” this morning or did you forget to change your clocks? Our schedule is a little bit wonky today, but I don’t mind Daylight Saving Time because the days are getting longer, my friends. We’ll be eating dinner on the back patio in no time. What a month it’s been- crazy weather, my grandpa’s memorial, visits from friends and my folks, Oden’s first birthday and a big fiesta to celebrate it, one-year check-ups and a stomach bug that put everything on hold (and in perspective)… Just when I think things might slow down, they don’t! But this is LIFE and I’m pretty grateful for it. We only get one! Look at some of the things that have been keeping me smiling along the way…
