Spring Cleaning- Inside & Out

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. With it comes a sense of renewed energy and motivation. I love hearing the birds chirping, watching the squirrels build their nests, and smelling the blossoms from flowering trees and bushes. I look forward to opening up my windows and doors to let the fresh air clear out any stagnant winter air stuck in the house. I also notice the earth does a little cleansing herself.
