Rob and I have this running joke that whenever he is away on business I rearrange the house. I am constantly moving around furniture and finding better ways to organize things. Sometimes, that means actually swapping out rooms. This past week Rob was away and I realized that our current layout on the first floor was just not working out. About an hour later the playroom, studio, and living room had been emptied of all decor. Then I decided to call Rob and tell him what would be on the agenda this weekend. He was thrilled. But in all seriousness, it just wasn’t working and although I have a lot going on right now, I knew a change would allow me to be more productive and the kids a little happier.

I can’t believe we got it all done in 2 days! I still have some final touches but the change is always proving to be a smart decision.
