Happy Friday

It is going to be a beautiful Spring weekend around Seattle and plans are to take full advantage by going for a long drive … to stand amid rows upon rows of tulips, simply being outdoors and taking in all that is refreshingly abloom.  May there be delightful things in store for your weekend and that it is warm and lovely in your corner of the world.
