Nesting. We are currently in the midst of finishing up the basement remodeling project which means new (big) egress windows, walls, wood floors. Super excited. Our bungalow is fairly small so we’re stretching out every square inch we can get. When it’s all done, our basement will include a spare bedroom, laundry room, playroom, and family/tv lounge room. A ton of work, but worth it. This project is giving me flashbacks to two years ago when we gutted and remodeled the main house when we were on the edge of having a baby (crazy times).
Loving. True and I have been watching this video over and over. I just love everything about it. I’m not going to lie, there has been a tear or two shed. It’s that awesome.
Clearing: I’ve been cleaning out my closet, big time. I have so much more to say. A whole post, really. About creating clearings, making room for more growth, and how the simple act of cleaning out a closet is so much bigger than getting rid of some old clothes. More on that soon.
Decorating: Been moving things around, rearranging furniture, and putting up a few new pieces from my collections. The piece above reads “kindness changes everything” and it’s a large, substantial wall piece. I just love it. (You can buy it here, if you’re interested). We’re moving rooms around too – creating office nooks, creative play nooks for True – that kind of thing. I love this stuff.

Celebrating: True turned two at the beginning of Oct and we’ve been celebrating the whole month. Then there was Halloween, and visits from faraway family, and day trips to pumpkin patches, and harvest festivals, and just so much living. Life is whizzing right through. And I’m working hard on not missing a thing.
