I had to declare a state of emergency on my desk. It’s kind of ridiculous and I’m embarrassed to even be posting pictures of the sorry state of it on the internet for all of eternity. But hey, I’m a blogger and we love to show how messy and imperfect we are!
It has been like this for months (and will probably get like this again) and I have been wanting to clean things up for a while. I have a hard time concentrating and getting things accomplished when I have to work in this much chaos. Nick actually got me started. He’s a smart guy. He does this thing where he’ll start doing something and I can’t stand to have him do it so I have to take over and finish it myself. So he started to move a few books and things off my desk and of course I had to jump in and complete the task to my standards. Sneaky husband!
I’m not going to lie, I feel much better now that’s it’s all finished! I know where everything is because it all has a place. As expected, I also found a few things that I had been looking for that somehow managed to get lost in all of the trash!
I’m pretty obsessed with wall decals and found a really pretty set at Target the other day. I thought now was the perfect opportunity to put it up on the wall since I was moving my desk to clean behind it anyway. I love all of the colours and patterns! It kind of reminds me of organized chaos, which I work well in. As long as my chaos has a bit of organization, I’m ok with it haha! I also really love the words “free spirit”. It’s how I have always tried to live my life. Obviously now that I have Ben, I can’t be as free as I once was but I still like to keep our schedule open to flexibility and time to enjoy ourselves.
I absolutely love our computer room and now I’m even more motivated by my little office space because it’s all me! The orange colour is great and I’m so happy with how I’ve been able to personalize my space. I can see myself getting a lot of work done here now that I have a little space to breathe!
