Treehouse Makeover

Treehouse Makeover

Since moving back to The Lisenby Farm, I've been swamped with household projects. I decided to make myself a little getaway "retreat" as I go through another life transition taking care of my grandparents and renovating the property. My grandpa built this treehouse for me in 1994 and I moved away the same year. My mother moved us over an hour away that year and I could only return to visit this little gem every other weekend spent away from school. The staircase to access the treehouse had fallen down between the trees, so no one has been able to go in until now! It was a true time capsule from my childhood in 1996. The first chore was learning how to use the tractor and clear a path way, take down a couple trees to line my path, spread mulch and lights and plants... It was A LOT of work! I also had our contractor install new decking around the treehouse since...

According to a New York Times article in 2001, IKEA did a survey of customers in which 31% reported they were more satisfied after clearing out their closets than they were after sex. Wow.

However, if you OR your significant other is STILL not on board with your new found love for all things organized, here are a few other wonderful benefits for getting your life organized.   Save Your Sanity Who wants to stress about stuff? Ew.

An Organized, Meal Planned Fridge.

An Organized, Meal Planned Fridge.

For those that know me personally, know that I DESPISE grocery shopping. I can't stand it! The whole process; meal planning, going to the store, bringing my own bags, organizing the fridge, having all the right ingredients, then trying to put it all together in time for dinner and not burning it. -Too much work- It wasn't until about a month ago that I was perusing Facebook that I saw a few of my friends "liked" this company called Blue Apron. This company will send you all the ingredients with the exact portion sizes! Ta-Da. I'm saved! My boyfriend and I have been using Blue Apron for over a two months now and we both have so much fun preparing each meal. *Bonus* It comes with step by step (with pictures) of how to prepare each dish. Which means it so easy to cook that even my boyfriend easily prepares a gourmet dish in 30 minutes. No stress. No shopping. AND, it's a new and exciting activity...

The Lego-land Kid!

The Lego-land Kid!

  I had such a blast organizing with this loving family of four. Their son, age 8, was the sweetest, cutest thing I've ever seen. His father called me asking for help. Emotionally, it was very hard for him to deal with his son's room. "I've been wanting to do this for a while, we just need help", they told me. As soon as I met him and his lovely partner, I knew I could de-clutter his son's room in a heartbeat. But, I had no idea his son would make such an impression on my heart. This family has so much love to give and to share. They just needed help getting it done! His son and I spent six hours together in his little 8x9 room shuffling through toys and dust. I think the excitement of getting his 'room back" got him pumped up. I remember him telling me, "this is so cool I can see my floor, I haven't...
