Right now, I am watching the "Letter to Juliet" movie. It was so romantic, full of love, and very inspiring. I guess if you're in love you can relate to this movie. I suggest that you watch it and feel the power of Love.

"I am madly, truly in love with you."

In Verona, Italy - the beautiful City where Romeo first met Juliet - there is a place where the heartbroken leave notes asking Juliet for her help. It's there that aspiring writer Sophie finds a 50 year letter that will change her life forever. As she sets off on a romantic journey of the heart with the letter's author, Claire, now a grandmother, and her handsome grandson, all three will discover that sometimes the greatest love story ever told is your own.

My kids begged us to go to Disney this year for their Spring Break and though we told them no, we’re actually going to book a trip and surprise them with it at the last minute! They’re going to be absolutely elated but it’s really going to stretch us money wise, so I’ve been tasked with finding us the best deal online. We’ve got wireless from http://www.clearwirelessinternet4g.com at the house so I’ve been spending nights looking up packages and specials for families. It’s tough this time of year though since so many people have the exact same idea, so I’ve got to really dig in order to get us a money saving offer. Whatever the cost, it’s going to be worth it since we’re all so excited! I’ve actually never even been to Disney World so I’m probably just as excited as the kids, and my husband’s just going to be glad to get away from his job and get down to the Florida sunshine for a while! Spring Break, here we come!

I don’t know about other people, but I hate spring cleaning. Washing windows, cleaning drapes, cleaning carpet and the list never seems to end. It’s like having a second job being a home owner. I don’t have pets but I do have two kids. So you can imagine I have to clean constantly already. So this year I decided to hire someone to do it for me to save myself a lot of work. I researched a lot of companies and found Steam Team of Texas.

I was surprised at their range of services offered. They do it all for an incredibly fair price. Carpet cleaning, drapes, hard wood floors, leather, stone and tile cleaning and they even do smoke and fire restoration. Finally I had someone who could do it all and free myself up to do more important things. The steam team is an Austin original, it’s locally owned, offering a full service cleaning, restoration and catastrophe management in Austin, Texas. They have tile cleaning and sealing austin, urine odor removal carpet austin, water & fire damage restoration austin and a lot more.

The Steam team has quite a few specials going right now, 3 rooms for 99 dollars! Duct cleaning for the whole house just $225, 50% off upholstery cleaning. Now that’s a deal for me. The coolest thing is all their work is unconditionally guaranteed. Customer satisfaction is their first priority or they give your money back! You can even call them to get their most recent offers.
