live simply

I am still alive I promise, just busy planning that thing called a wedding. Apparently, it is actually really stressful and all consuming. So, I am sorry friends, I promise to try not to disappear for that long again!

Any who.... As the date moves closer and closer that I will need to make room for Josh to share a room with me, panic sets in because there is no where for his clothes to go. I mean no where, literally. As in, I already store my dresses and coats in another closet, and also switch out my winter/summer wardrobes according to season. So... now what?

I want to start our married lives together with a room and home that feels like ours, not mine that he just moved into. So, I have started organizing, cleaning out, and learning to "live simply."I have never been a very organized person, just enough to not loose things and get things done. As I get older though, lists are my friends. Charts and spreadsheets have become normal. Weird. 

Now, not only am I getting ready for my first big yard sale, but we have a meal plan every week, spring cleaning lists, weekly cleaning lists, just lists galore! 

The yard sale is where I am going with this. That is where I have really seen myself "learning to live simply." If I have three grey sweaters that are similar, is that necessary? No. So, in turn, I will soon be having a big sale in the front yard with lots of great stuff, stuff I love, but stuff I don't need. Plus, let's be honest, getting rid of what I don't wear just makes room for stuff I will wear! 

I will update you as the big sale comes up with what I have, how we are organizing it, and what we end up making! 

Oh, and happy spring! 
Here is my favorite spring bucket list download. So cute.
