Rachel Writes

Spring has arrived. We truly welcome with open arms the warm sunshine and longer days. I just read a recent New York Times article titled On the Wild Intoxications of Spring. The article captured the essence of this vibrant time of year beautifully. It's fascinating how nature awakens from its slumber, filling the air with the rich scents of blossoms and the symphony of chirping birds. Spring truly casts its spell, beckoning us to embrace its joyful chaos and indulge in the wild intoxications it offers. After the hibernation of winter, it's refreshing to be reminded of the boundless energy and excitement that spring brings to our lives.
