In reality, we're still surrounded by piles and piles of boxes. Some are opened, waiting to be put away, while others are yet to be touched. None of my house LOOKS like a home yet. It looks more like a big storage unit! The worst part? None of the boxes are organized. They just don't make sense. Kitchenwares mixed with clothing and baby toys? Yep, the husband packed most of our things. No labels. No organization. Just random things placed in boxes. I am so thankful we own our home and will not have to move for a long, long time.
It has been really overwhelming trying to make sense of everything while taking care of 2 toddlers, trying to get my 12 year old to help, and now chasing THREE dogs around. (That's another post entirely!) Add to that trying to cook when I can't find half of my things, trying to clean up the many, many messes my kids make in a day, and trying to make the time to blog? I have to admit, I am more than a little bit stressed out and exhausted.
But we still have a LONG way to go before our house looks and truly feels like a home. Here's where we stand today. Like I said, it's not pretty....
To kick this off in style, I would love to offer one lucky reader a great prize pack to help their home shine. Included in this prize package are:
(2) 22oz Banana Nut Bread Yankee Candles. Yep, these are the HUGE ones! And this scent is amazing. It makes the house smell like you've been baking all day.
