Hello March, and Happy Friday!
Today is the first day of March and all I can say is did February even happen? Sure it was a short month but whew, it flew by. The potted flowers sitting at the entrance to the grocery store have replaced the snow shovels and sleds.
I have to admit, I’m not all that sad about winter lessening it’s chilly grip. Spring skiing in the morning with golf in the afternoon? That’s what’s on my agenda this month.
Every change of season has me wanting to refresh and renew. It’s like I’m in a constant vortex.
I recently moved my office and it is totally energizing me. Plus, I get a new project to search for design tips and redecorate. It really is the best of both worlds.
Do you guys want to see a before and after of my office space? If so, email me back or comment below and let me know.
