Spring has officially sprung in the Midwest! Now is the time for planting gardens, going on walks and having picnics with friends. For the last couple of years, I have been on a search for the perfect picnic blanket, and I think I have found it! for some reason, the word "picnic blanket" always conjures up images of plaid in my mind, and this blue plaid makes me happy just looking at it. These blankets are not only great to look at, but they also zip right up and become a little bag, making storage a non-issue. Simple, classic and easy...enjoy your picnics!
