I can’t wait for spring.I love to open my windows and get fresh air in the house. I also do deep cleaning/spring cleaning. I found this great new cookbook from Six Sister’s Stuff. They also have a facebook page you can follow. This cookbook is awesome it has a lot of great recipes to try but they also have crafts, activities for kids and a great spring cleaning list. It is quite extensive.
