Dream: Organization

I have always prided myself for my excellent organizational skills. I love to have a place for everything and I like for everything to be in it's place. The world just seems more at peace when my house is not in disarray.

I would loooove to say that my house is always perfectly organized. And that I never lose anything. And that there aren't piles of junk. And that I feel at peace in my house. But... I can't. And I have two excuses. Two good excuses.

  1. We have a toddler (16 months)
  2. We have baby #2 on the way (Due Jan. 28th)

Anyway, I really do try to keep things neat and orderly in our house. Most of the time I am extremely proud of how uncluttered our house is and how it's usually ready for guests without a major cleaning overhaul. But there are a few areas that could certainly use an organizational workout, such as the pile of papers on top of my dresser and the mess that I call our bedroom closet.

Ideally I would have the time, energy and willpower to tackle these spaces. But, realistically, I am the mother of a full-speed-ahead toddler and I'm in the process of growing a baby. Seriously, right now the only thing I have willpower for is to take a nap. But we'll just pretend that I am going to take charge and organize. I would looove to purchase some of the amazing products at Lillian Vernon. Want to browse along with me? Need to get organized? Find the tools you need at Lillian Vernon!
