They don’t call it “spring cleaning” for nothing, y’all. It’s always this time of year that I crave a blank slate, starting over, and simplifying. I want to empty my closets, clean out the garage, sell all my furniture, eBay all the things. Between Kyle and I, it’s almost crazy how hoardy we’ve become with the random crap we’ve amassed in the past 3 years of living together. I mean, I don’t think I need that ikea bookshelf I got in college. Or those jeans that never fit right, no matter how much I hoped my butt would change shape. Those have got to go. Plus a million other things that have been collecting dust and serve no purpose. Bye, things!
It feels so good to purge everything, right? I have lofty goals of living with much less. Wish me luck. Or give me some advice, perchance? PERCHANCE? And why does Lady Mary get all the hot suitors? What about poor Edith? Anyway, spring cleaning.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I spent mine with my family and loved every second of it. Don’t even get me started on sweet potatoes. My mom makes 10 lbs of sweet potatoes every Thanksgiving and I cry for days when the leftovers are gone. All in all, it was a great day. Plus, 4-day weekend!!
Also, here’s a little peek at our updated dining area (sorry for the crappy iphone pic, yikes). We got rid of the giant wood table and replaced it with a much smaller, white one. I’ll post more details when it’s a bit more presentable, but just wanted to share Kyle’s “I-CAN’T-FIGURE-OUT-WHERE-TO-HANG-THIS-SHIT” face. We ordered this print for above our bed, but when it finally came in the mail, we chickened out and decided that the risk of death-by-falling-art is not something we want to subject ourselves to (you know, California earthquakes and such). Anyway, it’s a photo I took from our trip to Big Sur and it is HUGE. No idea where to put it now, but it might just land above the dining table.
So there’s that. December is here and I’m feeling really positive about it so far.
