Every morning the birds have been chirping me awake – and not the alarm on my iPhone (which, funny enough, is the ringtone I use to wake up!) – but the ones outside my window, which are apparently very busy and chatty at around 5:30 am. Their springtime chatter makes me feel like Snow White each morning, waking to their early chirps, and if there wasn’t a screen on the window, I’m convinced they would fly in and perch on my bed for a conversation!

It’s spring, my friends, and to make it feel more official, I spotted my first bunch of rhubarb from the market! And this spring week is extra special since we are celebrating my husband’s birthday. I plan on making his favorite rhubarb cake, but we really need to toast with something special, so that calls for a Rhubarb Mint Margarita.
