Sing along with me! (to the tune of Wheels On The Bus) -

The roots of a plant grow underground,
underground, underground.
The roots of a plant grow underground.
All day long!
The stems of a plant hold up the leaves...
The leaves of a plant are making food...
The flowers on a plant are making seeds...
All day long!

The spring equinox is a few days away (March 1) and even if our snow covered yards don't show any hint of spring, the calendar says otherwise. And in a life where we celebrate the little wins - this is note-worthy!

We have a parent inspired cocktail to add a little spring in your step (ha ha) and some spring inspired activities and reads for your family!


Spring Inspired Cocktail* - Lavender Bees Knees

Floral notes mixed with bright citrus is just the thing to add a zip across the palate and your mood. Long day? Settle yourself into a cozy corner, sip on one of these while you scroll spring flower container arrangements on Pinterest. Click here for the cocktail recipe ingredients and instructions.
