We finished cleaning out the inside of the old house yesterday afternoon and our buyers started moving in yesterday evening.
At the farmhouse now, we are living in a state of chaos.
The rooms that were somewhat organized last night have since become a bit chaotic again with more tubs added from the last of the belongings we brought over today.
The biggest thing that I have been telling myself through this whole process is that I only want to have things in the farmhouse that we love and use.
I can think about whether or not the items I unpack spark joy for our family.
I can think about if it's worth keeping a specific belonging if it means cleaning and dusting around it for the next several years.
I can think about how much time it would take to take care of an item and whether or not it's worth it to be away from my family to deal with certain "stuff".
Because I know that I have the power to choose what gets to take up space in our home and what doesn't, I am going to put myself on a bit of a schedule to go through certain rooms over the next few weeks.
I want to be completely moved in and settled before I begin spending more time at school preparing for the 2017-2018 school year..
So here's what I've got planned for myself.
I want to have the main floor completely finished before the wedding I have to photograph on Saturday.
I'm looking forward to revealing some of these rooms to everyone over the next week or so when I purge the unwanted items from each room and put the finishing touches on them!
