It’s official: spring is in the air! You know when you can just feel it in your bones, smell it in the wind? That’s how I know.
Today when I went outside and it was clear in the 60’s, so warm I could almost wear shorts, that’s how I know.
I am also made very aware of springtime when the tourists return; flocking in giant groups, riding on their bikes with little care for anything else around them… yes, I am aware.
It is springtime.
I live in a small coastal town that attracts a lottaaa tourists every year, not that I mind.
Cause I don’t.
But sometimes, like when I am trying to drive five minutes down the road from my house to Vivian’s house and a group of fifteen-year-old boys are on their bikes inthemiddle of the street talking to their “girlfriends” who are up on the porch of the house next to the street, and those little boys refuse to move until I start fanning my hands all around while having an “I understand this is your break, but I still live here” smile on my face.
Yeah, that part I don’t love. I guess it comes with the territory, right?
I’m sure you’re just saying, “Hunter, don’t even think of complaining about living at the beach.”
But my locals are with me, aren’t ya?
So I’ve decided that as spring rolls in the and people roll in even faster, I am going to sit here and sip on this smoothie that is so tasty you would never guess there’d be spinach in it, and smile. Bring on the summer.

I use Bee Free Honee and it is amazing. If you vacation (or live) in Rosemary Beach, Florida make sure to stop by Wild Olives and pick up some. Tell Chris that Hunter sent you.
P.S. this is the apple honee I use.. and it’s literally the bomb dot com.
