it’s getting closer, so i created an entire display on our chalkboard wall to start the countdown!

miss thirteen and i will be going to nyc at the end of the month,
then about a week later… husband + our other three kiddo’s + their auntie will be driving our stuff across the country to boston.
thank goodness for an auntie who loves to drive!

miss thirteen and i will take a train after her dance nationals are finished in nyc and meet the rest of our family in b-town.

so. did you read that correctly? my husband is going to be driving our kids across the country + a large truck + a trailer + our two vehicles…



When your environment is cluttered,

The clutter also limits your brain’s ability to process information.
Clutter makes you distracted and unable to process information
as well as you do in an uncluttered, organized, and serene environment.

does clutter distract you? yes? no?
