I have to make some seriously change in my life. Here’s a confession: my apartment is a mess. I think I clean it every weekend, and then during the week, the clothes and dishes and paper and shoes just pile up. Mess, clean, repeat. Now that I only have one day off a week, I really need to reevaluate how I spend that time. The last thing I want to do is spend it cleaning. And when the rest of my life is busy and stressful, the last thing I want to come home to is a busy and stressful apartment…this does not help my sanity.

So I need to make a change. I need to learn to not make a mess. Prepare my outfit the night before so I don’t try on every dress in my closet every morning and don’t hang them back up. Wash my coffee cup before I leave for work. Read and sort my mail each night. Just maintain my personal space so it’s inspiring and comforting.

Have any other tips for keeping a clean house without really thinking about it? How do you keep your space inviting for yourself? Please share…I’ll absolutely try it out and report back.

A Clean Kitchen

I hate my kitchen right now. Reluctantly, I’ve been able to get myself in there to prepare a few farmer’s market inspired meals and bake a cheesecake, but otherwise, I don’t want to even step foot in it. Last week I spotted a mouse on my counter. MY COUNTER. By my dishes and my coffee maker and my olive oil and my cute dish towels. I’ve scrubbed and disinfected. I’ve set up traps, patched holes, and the exterminator is coming soon. I’m trying to not let such a little thing get me down. But I’m still just so disgusted and frustrated by it.

So today I’m dreaming of these kitchens. Where things are clean and sparkly and it’s a treat to cook a meal. Let’s go there. And if you have a kitchen like this, please have me over. I’ll make you spaghetti and a soufflé.
