Storms + Spotify = Summer Cleaning
Hey y’all! Unfortunately, I don’t have a fancy post today.
I had meant to finally do a recap of our trip to Gatlinburg over 4th of July, but by the time I sat down to work on this post yesterday, it was already 9pm and I had spent my entire day cleaning, so I was EXHAUSTED.
Seriously, I cleaned and organized for over eight hours straight. That might be a new record for me. I really hate cleaning. I wish I was more like my sister— she loves to clean!
Thank goodness for Florence + the Machine playlists on Spotify and an awesome thunderstorm!
Not exactly why, but it made me extremely motivated and productive. I guess knowing that it was so yucky outside meant I didn’t feel like I wasted my day inside cleaning. Plus having some great music to belt out to makes you feel a little like Cinderella. Now if only I could get my dog to sing along with me like the mice do in that movie…
Anyway, here’s a peak at one of the projects I accomplished: redoing the built-in shelves area in our master bedroom.
It’s not super convenient to have books up there as I actually have to get the step-stool then climb on the part where the TV is, but I was tired of that area feeling like “wasted space.” Plus most of the books I put on the shelves I have already read, so I probably won’t be reading them again too soon.
I really love how it turned out. With all the books, it gives it a lot more color. Other than the Bibles. My husband has quite the collection of black Bibles apparently.
I do miss my wedding things, but maybe I’ll figure out another place to display them.
How was your Monday? Hope your week started off great!
