A goal for this coming year? Purge the stuff that has no purpose or sentiment, and fill our home with beautiful things. I want to hand braid a rug. I want to display the things I'm working so hard on in my pottery class. I want to finish the cross-stitched family tree I started when I was pregnant and frame it. I want to hang a quilt on these walls, empty all the drawers/cabinets/shelves/closets of their crap, and give this space a feeling of home. Even if it's not our forever-home and we could be moving in as soon as a year, I don't want to feel like we're just making do any more. It started yesterday with a good sweep through my big bookcase, and today I tore through our kitchen cabinets and drawers. Now the kitchen table is covered in things I need to Freecycle or donate, but that's a good problem to have!
