Baked Cinnamon Overnight French Toast

Spring is in the air once Valentine’s Day is over. I LOVE seeing the stores stock up on Easter treats, bunny rabbit plushes and pastel spring colors.

I can already smell the new grass. I can’t wait for the trips to the store to see the new little baby chicks, ducks and bunnies. I can’t wait for RAIN instead of snow.
