image from real simple daily wallpaper's been over 2 months since I last blogged! Needless to say, things have been a little crazy around here. Crazy but worth it. And there's nothing like moving apartments to add to an even more hectic time, and so we're on the move again.

I'm going through a major decluttering phase and trying to focus on quality, not quantity, and have been asking myself I really need this? can I live without it? did I even use it in the past year?? So bags and boxes have been filling up - ready to be passed on to others who might have a use for them. It feels good to let go.

There's also a lot of mental decluttering going on - trying to organize ideas and goals in my head, trying to visualize them better. Hopefully it will translate into something productive.

I came across this quote in my inbox which got me thinking:

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” Karen Lamb

So true, isn't it? Life doesn't get any slower, the to-do lists don't get any shorter. It really got me thinking about what I want to do and what I'm doing today to make that happen.

Shoebox storage

I'm a regular reader of Ohdeedoh, Apartment Therapy's site for design for children, so I was excited when they featured my little shoebox storage project in their resolution renovation series. I won a cute little bib for it that says small is cool. Yay!

Little people, big changes...

So life takes a new turn once again. The little one is here and mamahood the second time is just as beautiful and overwhelming as it was the first time around.

Someone I know recently told me that she measures the fullness of her life in the happiness of her children.

So true. I am starting to feel that more and more now.

My previous post's link to buying flowers reminded my cousin to stop on her way home from lunch and buy a pretty bunch for her place. She sent me a photo. Just looking at it brightened my evening.

Happy 2008!

I am expecting my baby any day now so I really hope I can keep up with blogging more regularly once I have my hands full with an infant and a toddler and all the madness that comes along with big changes in life.

Here's a link to a lovely post from apartment therapy about the difference a bunch of fresh flowers can make to your room. So simple and true. I should really do this much more often.
