Spring Cleaning!

Twelve years ago I rode the Shoal Creek Bike Loop for the first time and I fell in love. The Allandale neighborhood became my dream neighborhood to live in with old houses and streets that could tell a thousand stories over the years. When we bought our home in Allandale two years ago, you can imagine how excited I was to finally move into my own house in the neighborhood. I made it. I dreamed of living here and raising my family here, and it’s all I imagined and more.

Accomplishing that dream truly was wonderful, but what’s funny is that I was equally excited about the possibilities of decluttering and purging in preparation for our South of the river to North of the river move. It's amazing what a family of four with two pups accumulates with time. What perfect timing too as our move coincided with the traditional Spring Cleaning season.

To me the move felt like a fresh clean start. We had more space and less clutter... a WIN WIN!

Flash forward two years and now we are a family of five with two pups. I am finding myself in need of another decluttering session. Now that Quentin is one year old, I am reminded of all the "stuff" that comes with babies. It is, once again, time to declutter and purge... Sigh.

I have learned that real life means that cleaning and organization is an ongoing work in progress... like laundry, you are never done, and sometimes you need help. I bet that many of you feel similarly and are somewhere along your journey of organization and decluttering.
