* So, I spent the last week completely purging and organizing our house. I started with Levi's room and went around the house emptying every room, closet and some out-of-control cabinets and drawers. I can't tell you how WONDERFUL it feels to get rid of so much stuff and implement some better organization. I feel like it's easier to keep on top of the chores and upkeep of the home when it's not filled to the brim with stuff. I still have the master bathroom to tackle, and then I will have hit every room. Husby told me I was nesting early. I figure hey, better to do it now when I have some energy than when I'm whale-ish and can't fit into small spaces! ;-)
* Raise your hand if you love Downton Abbey! Here at our house, we are completely obsessed with the show. We discovered it in it's premiere season last winter and absolutely ate it up. We were thrilled when season two started up a couple of weeks ago. If you haven't watched, you simply must. But you need to watch Season 1 first. I'm so in love with it that the other night I dreamed about a new makeup collection based off the series and it was the most fantastical makeup you've ever laid eyes on. So gorgeous. I think someone should take my idea and run with it! I texted my Mom the other day and asked her if we could all move into an English Manor together and dress up in formal gowns every night for supper. She was all for it. Now if we can get the rest of the family on board. I'm just not sure if the guys will go for wearing tuxedos every day. Hmmm.
* After going through my blog book the other evening, I realized I have totally slipped on keeping up with my 7 Little Moments. This week, it's back in force! I loved going back through the different weeks and seeing little bits from our days. Some ordinary and some extraordinary - but all so meaningful and lovely. Oh, and several of you asked what site I use to print my blog. I use blog2print.com. It's simple, it's FAST, and it's good quality. I tried Blurb one year, but I didn't have the time to keep up with uploading/formatting my posts into it each week. So, I go the easy route. And I love it!
* It's January and it's hot. I long for chilly air and blankets of snow. That's what winter is all about, so BRING IT ON, already!
Okay ... I planned on writing more, but my eyes are heavy and my warm bed with cool sheets is calling my name! Happy Monday, friends!
