Clear the Clutter

Clearing the clutter sparks joy! I love creating space and don’t want to stop. This invigorates me.

  
Today I cleared out my plates and bowls cupboard and removed all the small dishes that no longer spark joy.  I had so many little dishes for this and that and loved them once upon a time. I didn’t love the chaos behind the doors and today was the day to create space and to let go.  I touched each piece and thanked them for their service and their memories and put them in a box to give away.

Thank you Marie Kondo for writing your book that has inspired so many to tidy up! Thank you Helena for leading the way and inspiring me to be like you. I loved seeing your clean cabinets, rolled up clothes and piles and bags to give away! Way to go, girl!!

I love this new way of spring cleaning, creating space and letting go.

Happy Easter!!

Spring Break

Spring break falls at different weeks all across California.  This week my kids are off from school and we are staying close to home for several reasons.

We spent the day at swim practice, spring cleaning and hanging with friends outdoors.

  

   

  

 

My kids are happy to not have a rigid schedule and having time to relax. It’s been a chill kinda day with work and play.  I loved the slower pace and the afternoon felt remarkably long with “nothing” to do! They had time to go for a walk, eat a leisurely lunch, play basketball and darts, and even watch a movie.  I also loved having time to sit with my friend and not having to rush anywhere. There’s something really good about just being home this week.


Life is good.
