So, here are a few of the things that have made me smile as I have been adjusting to life in a new house, making it feel like home:
this is "Mom's Command Central"-- a whole closet just for my junk!
Don't you love my globe? I do!
A place for everything...
No more shoes thrown haphazardly around when we walk in the door
(This is just inside the back door where we come in-- one of you wrote to me and asked what shoe racks I use. These are about $5 at Target.) When the shoes overrun this little spot, it's a clue to me and the kids that it is time to do a "Shoe Cleanup!"
This of course does not include the abundance of library books that float in and out of this house.
The kitchen is not red anymore--
it's now a beautiful shade of blue that we found in the Pottery Barn catalog
The makings of fun-- found on clearance!
This new "Cinnamon Bun" flavor is a limited edition, so get it while you can.
Incidentally, I saw Pumpkin Spice in the grocery store the other day.
As I oohed and aaahed over it, my son said, "Mom, why don't you just get it?"
"Oh no," I said, "I couldn't. Not yet. It's not time." He gave me that "My mom's so weird look" and shook his head, but surely you guys understand, right? Drinking Pumpkin Spice coffee before Labor Day (really before late September) seems... wrong.
