Ah, spring!  The flowers are blooming.  The bees are buzzing.  The weather is wonderful.  And apparently, it’s the perfect time to clean things.

Whether you’re a student, a shift worker, a mom, or a young professional – we can all agree on one thing.  Life gets really busy sometimes!

There’s just something about the beginning of a new year!  With the turn of a calendar page, our hopes are renewed, our expectation awakens, and the desire to set goals reignites.  It’s pretty powerful stuff!
