Is it just me or do the stars seem to align when kids go back to school? Suddenly, I'm nudged to get organized, assess what doesn't fit, freshen up the house, and get back into a routine! Just as I would check what jeans no longer fit my son -- I find myself taking a hard look at my home. Is this dining room layout really conducive to the holidays? Is this sofa comfortable enough to handle my favorite fall tv lineup? Basically -- what is going to make my life prettier AND more comfortable for the upcoming days/nights in! Anybody else?
There is something very special about being intentional with what we surround ourselves with. I'm a big believer in "less is more" and "quality over quantity". I don't like to fill my shop with a lot of clutter -- and find that if I can absolutely nail my fall essentials, I'm a happy wife/mom/friend/daughter/sister! Give me some great pillows (non-seasonal preferably!), the perfect fragrance, a comfortable (and easy to clean...sofa), and enough baskets to hide the chaos that is junior high & preschool!
