At this point, I can say with confidence that summer has officially begun. In the course of just a couple weeks, my life has transformed from cold, slushy, and super busy to being sunny, warm, and free.
Suddenly, I'm craving strawberries and looking forward to the long summer days to come. I'm also getting more and more excited every day about the fresh fruits and veggies that soon will be coming our way. I've been taking the pup for long walks outside while enjoying the beautiful weather--I didn't think it could happen, but I think I may actually be wearing him out!
It's crazy the impact that a little sun can make on your outlook on life. I'm definitely not depressed in the winter, but realizing how much happier I've been lately, I know that the whole seasonal affective thing is for real. The lack of work for the next month doesn't hurt, either =)
Kick off your summer with some berries and Mason jars. Don't worry, you won't even have to turn on your oven.
