Hello! I made it home safe and sound and right on time to celebrate my daughter’s 18 birthday. Eighteen!! Gosh that sounds so strange to say. When I started this blog 9 years ago she was just 9 years old. So crazy! Soon she will be leaving home to attend college and while part of me wishes she would stay home forever, there is the more logical part of me that knows I have to let her go and watch her soar. She is ready. This parenting stuff is hard y’all. For those that have been through this already, do you have any tips for me on how to make the transition easier?
I didn’t share any favorites last week since I was enjoying time with family so this week I had a ton of links to go through in my Feedly account (where I consolidate and read all the blogs I follow). I hope you like the ones I’ve chosen. How many of you have been doing some much needed decluttering lately? I hope you all take at least 5 minutes a day to add at least 5 things to your donation station. It makes a world of difference to a lighter fresher home. Remember sometimes we don’t need more space, we just need less stuff in the space we have. I’ll talk more on this next week in a post when I share what I learned from visiting my sister’s 4500 square foot home and how it made me feel about my own much smaller home.
