SPRING HOME REFRESH

Hi there, everyone, and happy Spring! The sun outside my home has been shining for over a week, the weather is getting warmer – bringing with it the thawing of a hard, icy ground, and when I open my windows to breathe in the fresh air, I can hear birds chirping and singing away.
