I've been on a mission to declutter. The place is beginning to look good! But man, it's a long road. Just when you think you've gotten rid of a bunch--sold, donated, trashed--more pops up. When I talk about this to friends, I get so many nods and groans of agreement. It's hard to get rid of things--especially in our culture where less is not more--less is less! I disagree. The more i clear out things I don't love, the more I can focus on that which I do love. Here is a wonderful blog I just discovered that has motivated me to pare down even more. And here's a photo of our new living room and my corner writing desk. I love it!
