We think Spring is here. It is going to be in the 70’s here the next few days… hopefully that warmer weather stays. We are slowly starting to put away our jackets and long pants and saying hello to our shorts and flip flops. We love this time of year. We love when a new season comes as it reminds us of a fresh start.  Madison and Jax are so ready to play outside all day long. And we are looking forward to our daily walks again, which we went on our first one yesterday! It has been 3 months since we’ve walked and it felt amazing. We love walking and are excited to hear that our new home has lots of places for walks and hikes.

I’ve never really had grits as a kid–in an Asian family, we don’t have it often! However, once in a while we do love some barbecue. If I ever have a family BBQ I’ll definitely try this out to share with them!
