Everything is coming up...DAISIES!

Spring is a fantastic time of year. After the terrible winter we had in Boston, I'm welcoming this warm weather with open arms. I'm sure many around the northeastern US are as well. There's something about seeing all of the flowers come up and feeling the sun on your face that brightens the mood. Well, at least it brightens my mood. :)

There's another thing that happens in spring: spring cleaning. For the past few weeks, I've been going around the house and cleaning like a madwoman. This is especially true in the third bedroom, which we are making over into my home office. All of the kids' toys are out and so far I have a desk and a chair. Yay! The rest of the room looks a little bare, though. There are still some nursery curtains on the window, too. (Hmm, must do something about that.) Change is sometimes quick, like flowers suddenly appearing in spring, or slow, like buying furniture for a new room. As much as I want all of my furniture now, I know that it's best for our budget if I wait and do it piece by piece.

Flowers and office space aren't the only things changing. I'm also giving all of the covers in my Ecstasy Spa series a face lift. The series was in desperate need of something more. . .updated and it took me almost a full year to save up the money to get them all done. I think they look great, don't you?





Pretty, eh? It was a race to the finish, but I'm happy to report that they're all done and ready for the release of Ecstasy Spa, Volume III, coming out the end of May (cover arriving soon). What better way to celebrate spring than with a brand new release?

So tell me, what changes are you going through this spring? Do believe in spring cleaning? Have you started yet?

A lifetime New Englander, Suzanne married her college sweetheart and has been with him for over twenty years. Every summer she drags her husband and two daughters to Maine on a quest for the perfect lobster dinner. Every fall she can be found down in Foxboro, Massachusetts cheering on her favorite football team. In between those trips, she’s a chauffeur, a maid, a chef, an event planner, a hairdresser, a wardrobe stylist, a tutor and a sometimes masseuse. To keep her sanity, she often drinks copious amounts of coffee and stares at the blank screen of her laptop, dreaming of great adventures. Sometimes she even writes them down for others to enjoy.

Love your new covers! Really beautiful. I don't do "spring cleaning," but I do clean out my closet and drawers every spring and every fall. Now's the time to start. I live on the East Coast, and while we didn't get the snow you in Boston got, it was a miserable winter. So glad to see the daffodils poking through the ground now.

Good luck with your new office. That's exciting!

Great covers...what a job to replace them all..but worth it. Have fun with your new office. My favorite chair is one I found at a second-hand it dearly. I'm a dedicated bargain hunter...

So nice you survived the snow and are enjoying spring. A new office sounds like fun! Not the kind of spring cleaning around here. Pool overhaul and some audio stuff. It's all good.

Covers are very nice.

Wow... great new covers! I love them!

All the best with your spring cleaning. I love the feeling of going through things and throwing them away. It leaves me feeling so refreshed!

The new covers are beautiful and very sexy:). Spring cleaning is a bit late this year but it's on the very long "to do" list that seems to be growing longer with each day. Congrats on the new office!
