The Week in Review – Sunshine!

Good evening from Maine where we finally had a sunny day after what has felt like weeks of clouds and rain. As I shared on my Instagram account during the week, I still rode my bike and walked my dogs in the rain, but it’s always better do those things in the sunshine. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope that you got some time outside too. Whether it’s raining, snowing, or the sun is shining life is always better when you can get some time outside.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers reading this. I hope your children treat you extra well this weekend. Hi mom!
