|The Front Porch View||April, 2019 ISSUE|
I always look at April as a month of transition. As I move from winter to spring, heavy coats to sweaters, long pants to capris, brown and dormant landscapes to budding flowers and trees, I welcome a lighter spirit and happier thoughts. Perhaps the longer days help release needed endorphins, or maybe things just get easier in the spring? I don’t know the answer but I’m also not looking the gift horse in the mouth in search for it either. It is a welcome change; I’ll leave it at that. April seems to be the one month that brings a period of needed “rest”. (uhm, disclaimer – not for real estate business, but personally speaking) where we aren’t quite yet in the throws of mowing, cultivating, harvesting and preparing as in other seasons of the year. Take some time to “rest” and enjoy nature’s show this month. It won’t be long before we are inundated with outside chores and the business of summer.
Warm breezes are coming, now is the time to prepare for sunny weather!
We hope your Easter is full of joy and a time to make lasting memories.
This month we celebrate Earth Day, take a look below to see how you can participate.
