I'm baaaaaaack!!!!!!

Oh hey!!! It's me!!! I'm baaaaaack!!!!

I never thought that blog writing would become a chore to me, but just as soon as I felt the sense of dread when writing, I knew it was time for a break. When I started blogging, it was a creative outlet for me. After writing for over a year, it felt like an obligation, and less fun. Hence the break.

I can't promise that I'll be as diligent and consistent as I once was, but I do promise to get back into blogging a bit. Thank you SO much to those of you who texted, commented, or sent messages to me during this break. Some of you, complete strangers who reached out to let me know that you were missing my blog. Way to make a girl feel special. I really appreciate you! XO

I know I've got a whole lot of catching up to do, but for now, I'm going to begin with my #40bagsin40days challenge. Today marks the beginning of Lent, which means the beginning of my decluttering mission. Keeping my house clean is one thing, but keeping the clutter to a minimum is a whole nother beast! I plan to tackle it ALL and enter spring feeling refreshed!! The only spring cleaning we'll be doing around here is to our outside areas (hopefully!!!).

If you haven't heard of the 40 bags in 40 days challenge, click here to get more information and the printable you'll need to follow along! Let me know in the comment section if you plan to participate, so I can cheer you on, and get some moral support! ;-)

Wish me I'm starting with our kitchen desk. This can be a catch all area and just as quickly as we clean it off, paper clutter seems to magically appear. If you have any good ideas for paper organization, please let me know!! I'm all ears!

Here's to 40 days, a new blog, and a refreshed outlook on life!


  1. I missed you! Welcome back. This week I've been decluttering my wardrobe... and learned I need only three pairs of jeans. It's freeing to know that and much easier to get dressed now that everything in my closet fits, is damage free (or repaired! I did a lot of sewing), is flattering, and actually something I'd wear. Say hi to everybody! - Deb

  2. While I love following along with you on FB and such, I love getting to read your blog too! Welcome back!
