Spring has finally Sprung! It’s been a wonderful week with sunshine gracing our skies. Gone is the mountain of snow in front of our home, and up are popping the buds eager to bloom. In preparation of Easter next week, I have gathered a few picks to help us prepare. Whichever you choose make sure it involves some outdoor time as the sunshine does wonders for our glow as well as our state of mind. For a little treat in the day, visit your local Cobs Bakery and receive a FREE Artisan or Traditional loaf with our coupon! Yum Yum.
