A Place for Everything
Well, clearly my last attempt at a blogging come back was a major fail. While I really want to get back to it, it’s hard for me to come up with things to write about that I think people would want to read. Sure a lot happens in our busy life but it’s mostly stuff that other parents and families deal with on a regular basis and who wants to be reading about the things that they’re experiencing for themselves firsthand anyway? So that’s been my blogging conundrum.. until recently.
We’re coming up on the three year anniversary of moving in to our house. Moving here has been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. We love our town, our neighborhood and our home. We really fit in and feel a sense of belonging here. We’ve made some really great friends, my girls go to amazing schools, and we just couldn’t be happier.
That said, it’s taken just about as long as we’ve lived here for us to finally unpack and find a home for all of our “stuff”. Sure we moved here from a smaller place with younger children, and one would think, less stuff but for some reason, we just hadn’t found a home or a place for everything. Or at least not the right place. Things were shoved in places and thrown in a closet just to get them out of boxes and in the house. A lot of those things are never used or just take up space that could be used for something else. After finally having a feel on where things should go in our house, the time to organize, purge and rearrange has arrived!
Thanks to resources like Pinterest and reading other blogs such as Young House Love, iHeart Organizing and Sunny Side Up, I’ve caught a little bit of an organizing bug. And let me tell you, it’s far better than the flu that’s been going around. I’ve made a few changes, that will hopefully stick, and we’ve bought some new organizational tools to help put things in order. We’re still working on decluttering the garage, but we’re getting there.
So, stay tuned to learn how I’ve gained cabinet space, made my 6 year old fashionista’s clothing more manageable, created a space for my girls to be creative, and fell in love with a piece of furniture. Here’s to a more organized 2013 and a come back of sorts for this blog. Is anyone still reading?
