Happy spring, friends! The weather is just beginning to warm up here in New Hampshire, and each day new patches of green are popping up on the lawn, and it is so exciting. The winters are long here, and while we are giddy with the newness of the snow in December, there is something about snow in April that can bring its own special kind … Continue reading Chip and JoJo, y’all!
