With the arrival of spring I am finding a renewed energy. I never seem to keep resolutions when I make them at the beginning of the year. When spring rolls around I have a renewed discipline to implement good changes. This season I am very excited to share a few of these goals or probably more appropriately called, projects with you.
My first and most exciting change will be outside in our garden (aka backyard). I am thrilled with this opportunity to clean it out and enjoy this beautiful space. It is unusual to have as we live in a 6 family apartment building, which is pretty standard here. Being we live in the roof apartment and do not have the luxury of a balcony as the other residents do. I have been given full reign to do and use the yard to my liking. We have always set up a small table, chairs and our weber grill in one corner but now we can expand.
Second, I am ready to say goodbye to most of my wardrobe. I am ready to create my first capsule wardrobe. The goal is to fit my wardrobe into one carry on suitcase. I would love to be able to throw all my clothes in one piece of luggage and take off at the drop of that hat. We do plan on traveling quite often this spring and summer. I am tired of holding on to clothes that don’t quite fit right but feel guilty getting rid of them. Some I keep for sentimental reasons. Surprisingly, I find myself tired of shopping. It is a never-ending cycle that ends up in spending money I would rather use in other ways. I don’t know about you, but I always end up wearing a select few pieces of clothing anyway.
This will be the hardest project for me, especially emotionally, but I embrace this new challenge.
Lastly, I will be freshening up the walls in most of the rooms in our home. A little touching up with a fresh coat of paint can do wonders to brighten up a room and ours do need just that. Oh, and we need a new light fixture in our kitchen as the old one decided to leave us. Still looking…
Enjoy the newness that comes with spring. I find the little buds of the new flowers peeking through the ground, refreshing and in some way, motivating me to do the same. Blossoming beautifully with a renewed energy.
