Ohhhh – love all that outdoor space fun!
I purged so much stuff in our backyard to make it less cluttered and more relaxing. I got rid of my teak dining table. My visions of outdoor dining with the family did not come to fruition as they all have bad allergies and the usual fear of bugs that kids have. lol The good news is that I was able to turn that area into a great sitting & yoga space. I’m hoping to add a fire pit to that area too.
Last spring, we had a garden that made more sense & was manageable for our family. Lots of peppers (I like heat), artichoke, strawberries and eggplant. Green beans & zucchini were super successful too. I was pretty happy with our garden
I’m focusing on getting my office redone. I’m scaling back on photography and have been purging a lot of props and dresses. It’s really opening up space to store my craft supplies, give me a reading space & work on my computer without the clutter. Soooo much better! I need to repaint the walls since they’re still nursery yellow. lol I hope to get the main wall done, at least. That’s where I’ll be putting my wall organization so that wall needs to be done first.
Malia’s room needs a rehaul too. She’s definitely moving into pre-tween (is that a thing? lol) but the little toys and dolls are a thing of the past. She’s got a creative soul so I hope to add a nice desk where she can do her artwork & creative pursuits. She REALLY wants me to paint her dresser pink. I’m holding off as long as possible hoping she’ll let me paint it gray instead. I have some girly knobs that I can add to it to make it really pretty but I really do not want to do pink. Coral, maybe, but no baby or barbie pink. NO!
