Spring brings with it new growth, beautiful blooms, and the chance to connect with the outdoors again. As all the hermits and season-affective-disorder sufferers creep out of their caves, from the winter rises a chance to renew the bond with community.
A great source of connection in communities is through food. It is over meals that deals are made, laughs are had, and romances flourish.
