March - May 2019 Newsletter
“Despite the forecast, live like it’s Spring” is a phrase we can certainly get behind especially with the frigid temperatures and snow this season. Even though Spring is in two weeks, we are looking forward to the smell of fresh air and green grass, the sight of blossoming flowers and longer days. As many of you are, we eagerly await the opportunity to spend time outdoors and feel the warmth of the sun. Hopefully, Mother Nature will cooperate. In the meantime, let’s catch you up on all that is happening at Audrey’s.
