13 Projects to Love Home Again

13 Projects to Love Your Home Again

Thirteen weeks ago I was feeling a little blah about my home. I wanted to fall in love with it again and feel excited about it all over again like I did when we first moved in. In my experience, to appreciate what you have: take care of it. So for the last 13 weeks, I went all around my home, inside and out, and chose a project that week that would breathe new life into my home. It worked!! Now I feel completely inspired and I’m ready to keep going with regular improvements.

Here is a tour of what I’ve been working on — to see the post and read more, click on the link in the description above the picture.

1. In my Kitchen Area, I organized my recipes and put them in a pretty discbound book.

Thanks so much for coming along on my crazy rides! I love having this blog. Knowing I am going to be sharing with you inspires me to do so much good around here that I might otherwise procrastinate. That might sound weird, but it really does help. I was talking to a friend recently who was struggling with motivation to do some home projects. I half-jokingly suggested she start a blog! It is really good motivation!

Now onto the next fun thing. Coming very soon will be our 2nd annual 91 Day De-Clutter!!! This year is going to be even better!!!! Stay tuned …
