Is it Wednesday already? I meant to post our Easter photo on Monday…oh well. How was your Easter? We had a lovely lunch with my extended family, went to church, and then came home for pancakes and TV watching. It was a fun, full day. Oh, and Rafe did great on his first Easter egg hunt…he even figured out how to open the eggs with candy in them!
We have been so busy and the days have just been flying by. We’ve been little bees working on our house trying to get it ready for the market. All the big things are finished (bye bye turquoise living room walls), and we have just a few small things to complete…aside from de-cluttering and getting rid of stuff that we don’t need.
I’ve been using this quote from William Morris I found in Tsh Oxenreider’s Organized Simplicity: Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. It’s been so helpful, and really pushes me to get rid of things that truly serve no major purpose in my home.
Enough sitting around, I need to do my dishes, laundry, and clean the bedrooms and bathrooms. Wish me luck!
