I always “jump the gun” when it comes to transitioning from one season to another. Especially when it comes to Spring! I love love love gardening… or at least the idea of gardening. So digging in the dirt in the spring is such a joy to me. Coaxing the earth after it’s winter nap and bringing green things to life! My love of seasons continues on in what we eat too. I am such a seasonal, eat-what-is-growing-locally kind of girl. I’m already transitioning my recipes to reflect the end of winter and the beginning of spring!
