The Before and After Parties over here are all about proclaiming to the world a project you need the motivation to get started on, and then go at it in the month ahead! Any kind of goal is welcome - work on getting a business off the ground like Suzanne, learn how to restore a piece of furniture like Sarah, or organize & beautify a closet like I did. How about a weight loss goal, a commitment to yourself to work out, or knock something off the house to-do list? Share your "before" here today, and come on back at the end of the month to tell us how you did. The project doesn't have to be complete by then - but hopefully having the After Party date in mind (3/30!) will light a fire under you to stay on track!
You know I got waaaay off track last month when I pledged to work on making our master bedroom a peaceful haven (after a year and half of living here, it still looks like we just unpacked the boxes) but ended up working on my dining room instead. Even though I didn't accomplish the goal I set out to, I still feel good about February. I'm slowly but surely turning our newest house into a home that we love.
This month my goal is a little different - it's a plan of attack on my mom's house.
3 of my all time favorite chicks: Hannah, my niece Angela, Mom. Looking at this picture makes me want to give them all a big squish! I adore them.
I'm the girl of good intentions who wants to help my family and besties with various home projects, because I love them and have the ability to help them. But managing my time isn't exactly my strong suite.
My mom has been wanting to sell her house and downsize into a condo or apartment for a long time, and I keep telling her I will get her house ready to go on the market. I've told her this for 6 months. And now with the spring real estate market right around the corner, it's time to put my own home projects on the backburner and make her house shine. I'll still be sharing some home, crafty and foodie fun over here but the world isn't going to come to an end if my dining room stays in it's vanilla state until April, or the curtains aren't hung in my bedroom yet, right?
What about you, my friends? Do you have a plan for the month ahead? You have four whole weeks this month to accomplish your mission - the March After Party isn't until Friday, March 30. Share your ideas and let's get this party started!
