Spring Cleaning

 One of my main projects for spring break was to clean out my stuff from our playroom because we plan to convert it to a craft room. So all day yesterday I spent my time cleaning (and reminiscing over the remnants of my childhood). Fun fact about me, I LOVED American Girl Magazine. My subscription started in 1998 and ended in 2008. I read them for an almost embarrassingly long time. But seriously they were the best. I found all my old magazines and read through a few (they were still just as entertaining by the way). 
Guys, cleaning is hard. Not just cleaning but purging. I had to throw away so so soooo many things. I've been keeping paperwork from all of high school. It was somewhat nice to throw away all of my chemistry papers and physics papers. All with a sigh that its all behind me. I'm a hoarder but I'm glad that I took the time to get rid of the things I no longer wanted to keep.
 The fun part of purging is finding things that are sentimental to you. Like the above doodle. It was drawn by my friend Ellie. I don't know why, but I always find it hilarious and I remember thinking "I need to save this to cheer my up on bad days!" Well, now I have it tucked away somewhere safe so that I can pull it out whenever I need a laugh.
And after a day of hard work, an evening of rest was well deserved! I just started reading this book last night and I'm already half way through! I borrowed it from my mom's stash and so far its been a lovely light read. I hope everyone is having a lovely week! I know I am!


  1. OH MY GOSH!! LOVE your bed cover!! So cool!!
    I'm a hoarder too, but I had to have a HUGE clean up when I moved countries! So hard to throw things out, but sometimes, it just needs to be done! :)

  2. Spring cleaning is one of my favorite things to do! However, it is soo time consuming. Although, afterwards, it feels so good and is so rewarding!
