DIY Colorful Abstract Art (So Easy a Child Did It)!

Hi friends! I've recently been scrolling through thousands of photos on my Mac trying to clean up duplicates and delete anything that is clogging up space. While doing this, I came across several photos of projects I never blogged about! This DIY is from an embarrassingly long time ago (2 years, ahem)! Better late than never, right?!

School Storage in the Mudroom

Hello friends of the blog! I'm trying to get back into blogging after a long hiatus. I'm convinced I will never abandon the blog because I have too much to share! But real life just gets in the way a lot of the time!

We tweaked our mudroom just a tiny bit recently and I'm loving the added storage/organization. Our mudroom isn't huge, but it serves many purposes, so it has to function well. With the kids being in 3rd and 2nd grades this year, I noticed there were more papers coming home, reading calendars to manage, spelling lists/notebooks, and one big, heavy math book coming home. Each child also brings home a planner and folder each night to go through (that has to be signed). This is all in addition to remembering library books every week! In years previous, we could keep all this stuff on the refrigerator or in piles in the kitchen. This year, I was OVER it! I love a clutter-free fridge, and I was feeling the need to upgrade our school storage and become more organized in the process. Excuse the bad, grainy photos...our mudroom doesn't get any natural light!

Cubs Win the World Series!

Well, it's been over three months since I've visited this blog. You know, the one I'm the author of - ha! We have had so much going on with the basement reno and I have a laundry list of things to share with you guys. Today though, I feel compelled to blog and share about the history that was made last night. I have to share about the Cubs victory and about all the fun leading up to the win. I never want to forget what this day feels like, mostly for my die-hard Cubs fan of a husband, and for my kids who will hopefully always have memories of this month. What a fun October it has been in our household! We are all exhausted, but it's all been worth it. For the love of the Cubs, and all things sports, what an incredible moment in time!
