In North Carolina we've been experiencing the ups and downs of weather with fog, hail, rain, tornados and sunshine. Needless to say, my favorite is the sunshine. We have a gaggle of goslings that hatched last week and I'm enjoying my mornings on the porch watching them waddle past.
What are you looking forward to this Summer? We already have healthy popsicles and herbal iced tea going. Two of our current recipes we'll include below for you to try your hand at making.
This month I wanted to address when to book a Follow-Up Consultation appointment with me.
