Weekly Roundup - March 23, 2018

It's FINALLY Spring! 

(Well, at least according to the calendar it is... Some of you are probably wondering if it's ever going to actually get here.)

The days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer, and there's just something about the fresh green of new leaves and all the flowers that are popping up everywhere that makes me grin every time I look out the window. Add in the fact that Spring High Point Market is just around the corner and I'm practically giddy!

This isn't just about me, though! We want to hear what YOU love this spring! Head over to our Google Form and tell us your favorite things!
