mmmm mondays....

good morning! hope y'all took advantage of the beautiful spring weather that graced us over the weekend. sunny spring days are good for the soul i tell ya. we spent lots of time outside- front porch sitting, grilling, weeding, planting, watering, and walking around our neighborhood. i love how everything comes alive!

here's a recipe that i've been meaning to share that is perfect for this warmer, sunnier weather! it's light and delicious, and super easy, which is always a good thing! it is also a good break from the norm for us, and i hope it is for you too!
