There's nothing like guests coming to your house for the first time that can light a fire under your butt to get things clean and organized. Post-Christmas always feel so overwhelming to me because of all the new toys and general stuff that suddenly has no home within our home. Despite these feelings, it usually takes weeks to get everything organized and settled.
But not this year! I was DELIGHTED when we got the call saying our friends Lisa, Joel and Liam would be in town to visit! Not only were we going to be able to catch up with our dear friends, but they were also going to come over for dinner which would force us to clean and organize all of the Christmas goodies overtaking our house.
Long story short: Our house looks amazing and it was absolutely wonderful getting to spend time with our sweet friends this evening.
And for this, I am thankful.
