Our schedule has been unpredictable at best so staying on top of household tasks hasn’t been a priority. But I’ve been busy putting my personal touch on this place the last several days (which may have involved adding no less than four plants to our collection and planning for even more) and the rest of the week will be devoted to cleaning and organizing. Storage has been a challenge–one that we’ve never had to deal with before thanks to an incredible rental with five closets and built-in shelving. I love my beautiful treasures that can be displayed (the living room and bedroom shelves were designed for that after all), but finding places for all our clothes and shoes, linens, papers, documents, toiletries, and general utility items–the things we prefer to keep tidy and hidden–is tough. I have a couple random boxes left to unpack and then it’s framing a few pieces of art and hanging the rest of the curtains. The kitchen and bathroom projects down the line are a sore subject for me (they exist, I promise), but it’s getting there!
