as much as i love the fall, there is just something refreshing about spring being right around the corner. it is always such a relief for the loooong wrestling season to be over and to have free weekends again. it has also been so nice to feel the warm sun shining on my skin the last few days. blake (and macie) have been busy working on the garden the past few evenings. i have big plans for the garden "bounty" this year (we really didn't get much out of our garden last year!). i would love to get into canning this summer...if anyone has any tips or good sites for canning/recipes please pass them along. hope you are feeling refreshed and giddy about spring and all that comes with it.
