Knock, knock. Anyone there?? I had no intention of taking such a long break from the blog but things have been a little weird around here. I’ve sat for days trying to come up with the words I could say to you to explain my absence. But, then I figured the truth would just be best. I enjoy other bloggers’ transparency, so that’s what I’m going to give you today. Including a rare selfie. 🙂 (and then some random decor pics just to break up all the text)
I’ve been doing a lot of decluttering around here. Maybe you’ve been following along. Maybe you’ve joined me! This week we are working on clothing. As I got ready to get started cleaning out my closet I decided to do a little research on an idea that I’ve been hearing about for a while on the interwebs. Capsule Wardrobes. Have you heard of this concept? I was intrigued but what I had heard, but I needed a little more information.
Wow, that was a great break! Have you enjoyed some time off with family? I still have a few days before my kiddos head back to school, and I am going to enjoy every moment. But, I am itching to get back into the groove of our regular routine. As we come to the end of 2017, we are looking back at the year and evaluating how we did. Just like I’m sure a lot of you are :). Did we meet our goals, where did we fall short, what are things that maybe became less important as the year went by?? All good questions. I love having this space to share some of these things with you – it’s great accountability. So, I copied and pasted my goals that I shared at the beginning of this year (in the black print), and I am sharing how we did with them (in the green print below).
Yes, I know that’s kind of a heavy title for a Tuesday right?? Well, sometimes I just feel led to share my feelings and my story. Just in case someone else out there is struggling with something similar. So….if you stopped by hoping to see some pretty Christmas decor then scroll on through and enjoy the pictures that I added just for you. Really, it won’t hurt my feelings at all. 😉 But, if the holidays have got you feeling like you’re at the end of your rope, then maybe some of these words will be helpful.
I’m seriously still wrapping my head around the fact that it’s November. September and October just flew by. We were super busy with kid activities and we tried our best to fit in a project here and there. Things have kind of been all over the place lately!! I have definitely been a little frazzled. But, all these things that keep me busy, bring me so much JOY so I can’t complain.
