Ah, spring.  The weather is warming up, flowers are blooming, and I am finding many more reasons to be outside at this time of year.   In fact, this past weekend found me spending a lovely day with friends in Brooklyn.  The weather was perfect as we mingled with people at an outdoor food festival.

April is a time of change, growth, renewal.
