Dirty Little Secret...

Ok so I'm going to let you in on one of my little secrets.

Are you ready..... Here I go.... 

Some days the only reason I clean my kitchen is so that I can feel good about opening the blinds on my sliding glass door. 

There, I said it. That felt good to finally get off my chest

I love the warmth that comes when the sun shines in, but I DO NOT love my favorite backyard neighbor seeing in to my messy kitchen. So I always feel like it needs to be clean for the blinds to be open. Hey at least I've got something motivating me...haha.

Now that the secret is out I guess you will know why my blinds are closed the next time you walk behind my house. :)

Weekly Challange

A weely challange is your opportunity to join us on our adventure. Or just peek into our homes and feel relived that your house isn't nearly as bad as ours ;-) Ok so every week we will post a before and after pic of a place in our home that is being overtaken by stuff. Every week we will attack full on the stuff that is taking over our lives. What to know how much the crap I took out of my master bedroom vanity weighed? Read on!

That which you own owns you.

I'm Ari I like life and I try to live it well. I married my husband just two months after we started dating and life with him has been an adventure ever since. I have three sweet kids. Miles is 6 1/2 and is scary smart. Issac is almost 5 and LOVES intensely. Abeni is two and a half and she is very determined. We love adventures and laughter.

Lately I have been so unimpressed with all the stuff that surrounds me. It seems we live in a world of more, more, more, is better! I am surrounded by things. One day I was cruising the Internet (ahhh pinterest I love you) and I came a phrase; "That which you own owns you." Seriously those little words changed my life! I don't want things to own me or my life. I want to live my life on my terms and in my own way. So I waited a year cause I'm a procrastinator preparing to get started. Now however I am ready to tackle my "stuff" habit head on. I am determined to have less and do more with my less. I don't want stuff to own me. To quote The Father of The Bride, "George Banks Ari M is saying NO!"
