The snow is gone and the cooler weather is on its way out. As we welcome spring, we face that awkward period (kind of like that moment where your hair isn’t short anymore, but not quite long yet…) where we just can’t decide between spring or winter. Some day’s its still chilly and other days we are sweating from just wearing a light jacket. The best way to cope with this weather (in my opinion…), head to a close by spa getaway for the weekend!
