Wouldn’t it be Loverly?As I descended the stairs the other day, I was reminded of the 1989 Bobby Brown hit “Every Little Step.” Every little step I took made me wince in pain. I can do stairs, but I don’t like doing stairs. Between my arthritis and the suitcase I dropped on my foot ten years ago, it hurts my feet, my knees, and my pride. I don’t want to do it multiple times a day anymore. … Which is the basis for our latest project. We’re adding a downstairs master bedroom to our house, where we already have more room than any two people need.

The Monthly Mix

Get Organized … Order and organization give me such a sense of peace. It might seem silly to some, but when everything has a place, I feel more at ease.

It can be overwhelming if you let it all pile up. My best advice is to start small with just one drawer or cabinet. This method will give you the momentum to keep going with your organization.

Soulful Pursuits: A One Day at a Time Kind of Life
