A small spring wardrobe

Yet another spring-themed blog post coming your way. Can you tell I am excited about the change of seasons? As I mentioned in my last post this weekend I changed my winter wardrobe for a spring one. It wasn’t pretty. At some point I had almost no floor where I could step on, and was…

Great spring activities that have nothing to do with cleaning

Things I can do without (and maybe you can too)

Let’s be frank: I tend to surround myself with too much stuff I don’t need, and I am sure you do too. It becomes pretty apparent when moving from city to city, or house to house; when you try to fit all your belongings in suitcases and boxes and you ask yourself “How did I…
