Can I just say when I started this little blog this summer I was hoping it would be a place for my girlfriends and I to share our home project failures and successes. I never imagined close to a 100 of you would stop by and enjoy our projects and share some of your own. Thanks for sticking around!
I love having followers - love it, love it, love it - but towards the end of last year I started feeling bad if I didn't post once a day, and couldn' t believe when I would go more than a week, etc.
The real tipping point that made me realize I needed a break was I found myself starting to do projects just to have something to blog when it really should be the other way around.
So....I needed a break. You know where I'm coming from, right? Right?
Anyway, I realized today I needed to start focusing a little more on my home.
I came to this realization when I sent my husband a text asking where my debit card was, he wrote back "Junk drawer" and I wrote back, "Which one?" Oops....
So I decided to use this blog (with all of you invisible friends who I'm pretending are not here and are certainly not reading this) as a way to keep myself accountable.
First, I'm tackling my clutter. My house is certainly not "Hoarders"-worthy, but there are definite hot spots. (Kids toys, maybe? Under the sink in the bathroom, anyone? Oh yeah, I'm going there.)
Then, I'm going to experiment and find a good way to keep organization part of my routine - so I don't have to ask which junk drawer ever again!
I know organization and de-cluttering are popular resolutions for the New Year and the blogosphere is full of great ideas. But I'm trying to not label this as a resolution or a temporary goal. I think in order for my home to continue progressing, it's time to get some organizational tools in check. Hope you'll follow along!
