I find it hard to believe that Spring starts next week! In fact, it starts a week today! I know that we’ve had an extremely mild winter but it always surprises me when the seasons sneak up like that! I can’t wait for the smell of the flowers, opening the windows, ditching the winter jacket, long walks outdoors and this year I finally get to start my new garden! Last year my fiancé and my future father-in-law worked really hard for most of the summer overhauling our back yard and creating some vegetable and flower boxes. We didn’t have time to start growing anything last year so this year is the year! I am really looking forward to growing my own food and making super awesome meals out of it!
You’ll notice that most of the links I’ve been checking out this week are recipe related and cleaning related! I’m getting in the mood for some spring cleaning and found some really get tips for organizing not only your spring cleaning efforts but your weekly cleaning schedule!
