"Oh your living room looks so pretty even while it is under holiday construction.
My Thanksgiving plans are to have dinner with immediate family (3) and then drive through the local "Celebration in Lights" at the local park. My…"
So what do you consider essential spring cleaning?And do you have an organized approach to it?Cleaning the closets kicks spring cleaning off for me.

"I never had a specifically Sunday tradition, but I always tried to have all my immediate family once a day around the table for a meal together. When my son was in middle school, he and his friends would call to see what was for dinner at each of…"
