just when we chicagoans were about to throw in the towel and make the assumption that winter would never end … spring is finally starting to show its face around here. from little sprouts of plant life to sunning puppies on the porch (and then very tired puppies in bed – long, sunny walks are tiring!), the evidence is all around us. i think it’s supposed to be nice this weekend – so go enjoy it! i hope everyone has amazing plans … or not, if that’s what you prefer!
