Here is what her closet looked like after her first attempt to put everything back: It … Continue reading

Perfectly Labeled Changing Table

 After my mom found these adorable gender-neutral baskets on clearance at Home Goods I was so excited to put them to use on my changing table.  However, the organizer in me needed a clear label for each basket.  I wanted something that could easily be changed since I really won’t know what system works best until baby arrives.  I still … Continue reading

Like most brides, I ended up with quite a bit of “stuff” after our wedding. This left me wondering what I should realistically keep and what I should sell / donate or get rid of.  I decided that most of the personal touches were too precious to get rid of since many were hand made by myself and my husband … Continue reading
