Jul 2, 2018 | by Cindy Sullivan

June 21st officially kicked off summer and, to me, that means lightening up - - from shedding jackets and sweaters for summer lightweight clothes, time away from the usual routine for vacation, kids out of school, to the generally lighter "vibe" the summer months bring.   It often also leads to projects around the house like cleaning out the garage...
