July WHAT??

So did July sneak up on anyone else besides me? I can’t believe we’re already 7 months into 2015. And it’s been amazing watching Gabriela grow and development right before our very eyes. It truly is an amazing experience.

I was thinking about the last 7 months and how I wanted to simplify things: our routine, belongings. Mental hang ups, etc. and I realized I haven’t really done much of anything. I really do think of reorganizing our master bedroom because I’ve read over and over again to make that your sanctuary, your place to relax, free of clutter. But then I think I’m too tired/flustered/unmotivated to start. 

But not anymore! And what better way to start off the month of July!  So I’m going to tackle one area/room/project a week – did I also mention I have a list of projects that I’ve wanted to do??  I’m hoping that this will spur me on to maybe do two a week. An ongoing project is our garden that is in a bit disarray due to this drought and NOTHING wanting to grow (other than my herbs and peppers). So that’s my ongoing project.

Along with that is my kitchen. I need to try to streamline it better; my herbs are all scattered around in different places; and I’m sure I can make it more efficient. Or at least try. 

Happy organizing!

    Love the Gabriela photo, so adorable! We love to garden too, here in Illinois. You must have some property for you to be able to grow your own. Hopefully, you will get out of this drought soon! The herbs look great…I just cooked a pouch of potatoes with our fresh basil and oregano with onions on the grill last night. Happy organizing to you, too!

    You’re not alone, July came out of nowhere! Precious little girl you have there, and so happy! The fresh herbs make ALL of the difference, looks delicious!
