Colors of Spring 2017

Just incase you didn't know, it's officially Spring!!! Even though the weather has been flopping back and forth, my prediction is that we will have no more snow and those "Spring-like" temperatures will start to be more consistent over the next week ( at least I hope lol)! If you have been in the shopping... Continue Reading →
