Joyous Spring!

 

“Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.” – John Muir

 

….and just like that, the sun comes out and faint tints of spring explode into cotton candy blossoms. How sweet it is!

We told ourselves we’d sent the last email in this format…that we wouldn’t send another until we launched…

‘Til soon…
