Complicated and Juxtaposed

In design, I like contrast. Dark and light. High-end and low-cost. In life, as much as I crave simplicity, the reality is that sometimes issues are complicated. In those cases, I think we should strive for balance. 

And then there are the times when two extremes must co-exist. 

Like my 40 Bags in 40 Days project. Which is about to become 40 Bags in One Day. Even as I listen to a podcast with Katrina Kenison about slowing down motherhood. One of these days I'll have to write my love letter to Katrina Kenison, but not today. I have bunches of bags to fill.

Here's a snapshot of the house that I'm calling artistic. It needs some loving attention. How is it possible we have so much STUFF?!

I can't see a good decorating plan when I have stuff everywhere. And as long as cabinets and closets are stuffed to overflowing, there's no place for things to go...

We colored Easter eggs last weekend--or at least one little person and I did. Neglected in the background is that microwave cart. But it will find its season of transformation, just like the caterpillar becomes a butterfly.

And on the day I was able to get this beautiful book, I also found this hilarious off-color nutrition site. 

Just like my house, my body is going through a spring detox. Upon the suggestion of my doctor, I am wheat-free. Weirdly, it is easier to say "no" to a donut when I can't even have bread. And I'm supplementing with this liver detox. I see whiter whites in my eyes and feel less of that rusty feeling in my joints. 

Now for another day of glorious sunshine and some fresh air with this old girl...
