California Girl…

I am here! I am alive! A little tired, a LOT tanner- but back home and back to work and ready to spill all the details about an absolutely amazing (almost) week I just spent out in California!

Pre-pandemic, one of my favorite traditions was driving to Northampton to check out the annual Bulb Show at Smith College’s Botanic Garden, a free event that took place the first couple of weeks of March every year. However, since COVID- the show has gone from being virtual (not nearly as satisfying) to having reserved spots […]
