Springtime Updates!

Happy March, and Happy International Women's Day, friends! I cannot believe that we'll already be "springing forward" on Sunday, March 10th, then celebrating the first official day of spring in 12 days. Where has the time gone?! It feels as if we were just celebrating Christmas and New Year's. Here in Chicago, the Lake Michigan boat tours are in full swing, and we'll be dyeing the river green on Saturday the 16th (I'll be sure to share pics)! 

As for me, keep reading for what I've been up to and what I've got planned in the coming weeks...
