After being cooped up in the house all winter, it really is good to throw open the windows and air things out when the first warm, sunny day comes along. Something about that fresh air and sunshine coming in through the window really makes me stop and take a look around. The same thing happens every spring, I look around as if I'm seeing my house for the first time in months and exclaim, “This place is filthy! We can't keep living like this.” And that's how spring cleaning begins, at our house.
If spring cleaning is something on your agenda in the coming weeks, I've found some great resources for you. And, I'm hoping that you'll be willing to share some of your own expertise with us in the Spring Cleaning Linkup! (Scroll down to the end of this post for the linky button.)
