It’s March break here in Ontario and being a big ski family, for us that usually means a week at the cottage skiing! There really isn’t anything better than those Spring ski days. We wait all year for them. Warm, sunny days that make us feel closer to nature and happy to the core. We call them Blue Bird Days! Well, this year it’s warm alright, so warm that it’s raining and the snow has pretty well vanished. Which leaves us more excited for Easter! It’s early this year which could have meant a very wintery looking Spring holiday but luckily it looks like my favorite holiday will be as I imagined, full of colour and the hopeful anticipation of summer to come!

The one where your kids say they hate whatever you send or simply come back with nothing eaten. Oh ya and then there’s the perfect lunch, the one you know the kids love. so out of laziness you send it about 10 times in a row and then lo and behold, now they hate it! Yup, it’s almost THAT time of year again!
