Nothing says "Happy New Year!" like...



a clean house!

With clean closets!

Usually, I'm the person who keeps her fingers crossed that when people come over, noone will venture to put anything in a closet or mistake a closet for a bathroom or anything of the like. That's because in mad dash attempts to clean, I usually procrastinate and start shoving things in closets.

Today, I want to invite you over, and will you PLEASE look in all of my closets... especially, you, Mom!

When Patrick and I got back from Decatur, we decided that during our time off, we would make our first transition out of survival mode and organize our life. For us, that meant going through every closet, every drawer, every attic space. It meant 3 trips to goodwill and 2 trips to the dump. It meant getting on the floor and cleaning baseboards. It meant cleaning our cleaning supplies.

And after several days...we're DONE. And it feels GOOD.

So here's to New Year's Resolution #1: Keep a clean(er) and more organized house!

We have been on the same kick - spent yesterday renting a carpet cleaner and shampooed every carpet in our house and both cars!! We are SO pleased that things can start fresh before the crazy life starts again! Good for you!! :)
