As I watch the snow melt on the ground in my backyard, I can’t help but feel excited to hear we’re springing ahead this weekend– which means spring time is quickly approaching. At 2 a.m. on Sunday, daylight saving time begins setting the clocks forward by one hour, throughout much of the United States.

Besides setting your clocks forward by an hour, now is the perfect time to wash away old man winter and refresh your home both inside and out. It’s a transitional season of new beginnings.
