I have been extremely busy ‘cleaning out my closet’ – Literally! And let me just confess that I am indeed a (recovering) hoarder -Eeeeek!
I mentioned in a previous post that I was planning a DECLUTTER – and that’s exactly what I did (yay me)! I – was – merciless! I threw out years and years of stuff. I mean, I had birthdays cards from my 2nd birthday – yes – 31 yr old birthday cards from people I don’t even know! Why in the world was I holding onto that?!?!?
My home feels brand new, it’s amazing! The husband walked in from work on Friday and asked if we’re moving house – ha ha! There’s so much space – I can see what he meant!
The Spring-clean has done wonders for our home and my sanity as well. I feel more in control AND – it’s changed my mindset. I only kept things that we absolutley need and love. Everything else was either dumped or donated. It was kind of bitter-sweet because I realized how much money was being thrown out but on the upside, I feel like I’ll make wiser choices in future when purchasing things – be it clothing or things for the home.
So tomorrow is officicially the 1st day of Spring here in South-Africa!!!!!
It’s such a wonderful time, everyone has a ‘Spring’ in their step! People come out of hibernation and straight to working on those much needed tans. Spring is synonymous for braai’s and pool parties, picnics and camping (my husband’s favourite thing) and for me – hayfever! But I never let that keep me from enjoying this beautiful season.
I’m wearing the perfect dress to welcome Spring. It’s light and the high-low hem shows just enough leg. I love the fit as it hugs my curves in all the right places and the colour is very spring!
