and soul. It is just like the flowers that start to sprout every
spring, the grass and the leaves that begin to grow and the snow
that melts and runs through the ditches. It is time for you to

April everyone is in need of a change. Whether it is a fresh new
haircut, some red/blond highlights, or to even add cooler clothes
to your wardrobe. In the springtime I love to go for walks now
that the ice has melted and the days are longer. The extra light
and warmer weather gives me a much need boost in my life and prompts
me to live a healthy lifestyle.

It is the time to take your bike out of the old barn which was
recently blocked by a large snow bank. Enjoy the freedom of biking
through the puddles and the water trail on your back from the
