“The beautiful spring came, and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.” – Harriet Ann Jacobs

Spring is here! 

A time for new growth, new beginnings,

and new hope. 

A time of rebirth and renewal. 

The past year had been a rough one for us all, and hopefully it is in our rearview mirror.

Springtime is joyous - that wondrous time of year when every dream seems attainable 

and with each warm and sunshiney day the possibilities seem endless.

I am encouraged and buoyed by the

green sprouts I see popping up

all over the garden.

I am excited to see the new crop of Spring vegetables adding fresh color

to the grocery stores,

and Oh, the flowers!!

More of us are getting out and leaving the safe shelter of our homes. 

Some are making travel plans and hoping to return to a pre-pandemic way of living. 

I have been able to resume my work

and I am looking forward, now more than ever,

to cooking for your family and friends

here in beautiful Lake Tahoe.
