The difference a week in March can make

 WOW – we had some amazing weather last week. Hard to believe that last Wednesday I was climbing in a tank top {and getting a sunburn}, and this Wednesday, I had to hike in 3 layers because it was -15 Celsius (5 Fahrenheit) with the windchill! I wasn’t working today…so I wanted to get outside […]
