    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Spring Cleaning

    How To Survive Spring Cleaning

    I love Spring. It’s my favorite time of year. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, the days are longer, and the promise of a lazy summer (I can dream, can’t I?) is just around the corner.

I set up camp in each kid’s closet and with their help, or in spite of it (Mini-Me can’t let go of anything, don’t know, ahem, who she gets that from), go through their clothes and shoes. We make a huge giveaway pile, for what no longer fits or is too worn out. She’s delighted, because to her, it means time to replenish. READ MORE
