Hm, the word ‘originality’ beings to look really strange when you stare at it long enough. I double and even TRIPLE-checked that I did, in fact, spell it correctly. Just one of those words, I guess.

Moving on.

I am so so so thrilled to share with you some of the “office progress” that Richard and I have been working diligently on. We did a TON of cleaning/organizing this weekend — from closets to dresser drawers — and even switching the contents of the guest room and office completely.

I loved our guest room, but we VERY rarely have guests. In fact, I’m pretty sure only three people have ever stayed over… in almost 3 years. THEREFORE, it makes sense to use that bright and sunny room for something useful to US.

We hated using our office. In all seriousness, I’m ashamed to admit that it had actually become more of a “junk room”.

Ashamed because that makes it sound like Richard and I deserve our own episode of Hoarders.

Eek.

But it’s all better now. The VVA (Vietnam Veterans of America) truck just came and picked up 8 or so boxes of clothing, shoes, and random household items. Let’s be real, you know you don’t need something if you didn’t even know that it existed. IN YOUR OWN HOUSE.

So here are some shots of how of my little half of the office is coming along!

I added the “gallery wall” today. Not sure if I’ll continue to add pieces, or just switch things out to keep it interesting without being overwhelming. I’m really happy with how light and airy the workspace feels, though. Very girly and far from “office-y”.

And here’s little Ellie, hanging out next to me and watching for birdies!

What do you think? Do you have a little sanctuary in your home?
