my spring to-do list

April 15th | an everyday moment

something about the blue skies, fresh air and sunshine makes me seriously want to freshen up my space and get creative!

here’s a few things on my spring to-do list…

1. simplify the kitchen counters {clear off clutter}

2. organize the boys’ toys. this feels like a massive project.

3. create a spring wreath {which hopefully i can share with you!}

4. find a mirror to hang over our bed

5. take a class at our community college. either photography or painting?

6. Make strawberry jam. And lots of it!

7. Spruce up our backyard with plants a new {maybe thrifted} table and chairs for warmer weather and outdoor eating!

8. What else??

  5. Sounds like a good list. I have to have my hubby do the toy organizing as I always want to freak out at how overwhelming it is and he works very methodically and just gets er done. Happy Weekend!

    Wish I could write a list but I no I would get one thing done, why do you get all your spare time from I don’t get 5 minutes to myself all day every day.

  16. I really love all your beautiful photos!
    Today I cleaned out my car and weeded out all the ill fitting clothes of my youngest daughter.

    Sounds lovely! I worked in my flower garden yesterday. We live in a townhouse, and my neighbor and I share a small patch of garden. She lets me plant and tend to it.
    I need to add some fresh flowers and more mulch…..fresh mulch screams spring! Have a wonderful weekend! ;)

    My kids just ended their 2 week break, and I also tackled the playroom/toys issue. It looks a whole lot better, re-arranged and re-purposed to reflect how they’re growing…but wow it was a LOT of WORK!! (And I could not let them witness what I was getting rid of!)
