The past few weeks have been both exciting and exhausting. Things are finally moving forward with house projects, the boys started their spring sports and we did a little bit of traveling along the east coast for spring break, which was fun but felt like a lot. The good news is that it’s finally starting to look like spring around here and has put everyone in a better mood — except for all this rain.
I’ve been doing a little bit of spring cleaning and purging, which feels really good, however, it was mostly due to the fact that I was ready to put on some important pieces of jewelry for a photoshoot — one piece was super-sentimental — and I couldn’t find them anywhere. I told myself that when I moved to a house, I would be more organized, but truth be told I have not been as organized as I hoped. I neglected my jewelry and hid pieces in multiple spots, keeping a few pieces of everyday wear in my nightstand and then in other spots. The last I saw of these pieces of jewelry was right before I left for a Mexican getaway and have no other memory of the last time I wore them.
It’s killing me that I don’t know where I put them and that they haven’t turned up. Did someone take them? Did I throw them away? I wish I had the answer, but I don’t and it’s leaving a pit inside.
I am slowly going through every part of the house, every drawer, purging things that I don’t need and really trying to stay positive from this whole experience. If those pieces are gone, will I replace the sentimental piece or just move forward? Needless to say, this has been a real learning experience no matter the outcome.
Rather than posting a fun lifestyle story on the blog this week, I thought I’d get a little more personal. They are only material things and I’m thankful all is good otherwise, it’s mostly being disappointed at myself for being in this situation.
So moving forward and coming soon to the blog: favorite drugstore mascaras, a spring accessories report, Puerto Morelos Guide, spring organization roundup (I SO need this) and ways to keep your hair healthy.
If you have ever been in a similar situation, I’d love to hear in the comments below.
