What Really Matters

Hello All! I am so sorry I have been gone so long! Things have been busy (life with 5 kids can be crazy - shocking, I know!) but I really wouldn't have it any other way! We have been busy with baseball, Baseball and BASEBALL!!!! I will try to share some pictures soon!

Yesterday we had a yard sale. I am really trying to downsize and rid my mind and my household of cutter! We cleaned out every cupboard, cabinet and shelf in the house and were able to come up with a driveway full of odds and ends- I couldn't believe it! We had so much STUFF! I had stuff that I had never used. I had stuff I couldn't identify (strawberry huller? tomato seeder? orange peeler?). I had stuff that we hadn't used in years. I had stuff to hold other stuff. I had stuff that was practical but just too much of it - like 4 13 X 9" pans and 10,000,000,000,000 cookie cutters, seriously, I am only exaggerating a little bit! It felt good to purge. It felt great to donate the rest. It feels FABULOUS to focus on what is really important.....

Like this! That is my nephew's foot. I LOVE that foot! There is no amount of "stuff" that could ever make me happier or my heart more content!
