The light is at the end of the tunnel. We can see the first day of spring, in the very near future. The word spring or springtime refers to the ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal and regrowth. All words that I, on this 28 degree day in March, can get excited about. To me, these words provide hope for the very things I’m looking forward to. Warm sunny days, clean refreshed homes and the introduction of new clothes and jewelry in pastels reminiscent of the spring and summer seasons ahead. So this weekend, when you spring ahead, celebrate with us by freshening up your home and wardrobe with light blues, greens, pinks and yellows. We’re happy to share, some of the upcoming dates that will continue to motivate you to the rebirth of spring!
