The big move

Happy Friday!  Our exciting news is that are buying  a wee bit of a bigger house.  And, its just down the street so we get to stay in the neighbourhood.    We have a few months until we move in which means I can be well prepared. I am already going through all my old stuff and cleaning out.  I'm the kind of person who likes to have the boxes packed and neatly stacked in the corner for weeks before moving. Everything organized and  tidy.

I have realized that I certainly do not need to buy new clothes for a long time. I have TONS of clothes.
Interesting- I have a big box of scarves.  I love scarves.  As I was going through the box I realized there were scarves in there that I forgot I had.  I get bored of things and its not like I NEED something new but its like the novelty of having a new item.  Even if its new to me but from the thrift store, thats still something different. Don't get me wrong, I am not a materialistic kind of gal, I just like alot of variation.
Anyway, I am being intentional about cleaning out alot of the stuff I dont wear or don't really need.  It will feel really freeing to let go of alot of the unnecessary stuff.

Of course I have been scouring the internet for house ideas and already envisioning how I am going to be setting up the new rooms. AND there will be a bigger room that I can set my camera up and leave in there so its almost like my photographic studio. I hope that it is easy to just snap shots in the morning before I go to work.

Alright, back to my room I go and back to sorting and tossing.
Happy Weekend everyone!! I will share house photos in a few months once we move in.


  1. I enjoy packing up and having boxes stacked too but I usually start too early then think I should wait after I have a bit and then it ends up the night before movers come and I'm up late finishing.

  2. I am the same way with scarves...I just can't give them away children! I have so many and I really love to re-discover them. Congratulations on the new house...I know moving is hard, but it is also fun to set up a new place. Enjoy!

  3. How exciting! I'm sure you'll enjoy decorating your new home. And it's nice to "shop" in our own closets. I also forget what I own, so going through our collection pays dividends.
