little

#augustbreak2014 little = "small", i.e. small steps and small victories. Continuing on my theme from yesterday, I can be an all-or-nothing person. Today I moved a few small stacks of books to the living room. It's a small step towards the calm, orderly home I so desire.

memory

Organizing this cabinet that I just installed last night is bringing back memories of when I used to have things together. Five years ago I got married, started law school, and moved into the house with no closets. It's taken me time to negotiate my relationship with Alan's stuff, and we've moved twice in the last year. Now we're settled, and I'm organizing. I feel like my old self, and it feels wonderful ️#augustbreak2014

Tea for one with some of my treasures: my Marimekko teapot, my Le Creuset honeypot, and the handmade mug from Japan given to me by @oneleafy! #augustbreak2014
