white paint pick + uplifting words

Good morning, how did you do with that extra hour of sunshine this morning?  I’m still clinching my cup of coffee.

As spring approaches, I’m thinking of chirping birds, freshly painted rooms, and organized closets.  Right now we miraculously have two out of three of these at our home.  A few weekends ago we installed a bird feeder and the birds are going crazy – I’ve never heard so many happy chirps.  And my oldest daughter and I completed a big project:  we tackled the laundry room closet, which was an absolute mess.  Four hours and five donation bags later, the end result was a beautifully organized space.  This closet had gotten so out of control that we all avoided it.  We rolled up our sleeves, edited every single item, tossed many unnecessary things, and tidied up the space so much that everything is now white linens, towels, storage baskets, and paper towels.

I didn’t take before and after photos of our closet, but this is an amazing closet you might like for organizing inspo.  She has an amazing IG page – check it out!  Sources listed on her post.

Today I’m also picking a favorite white paint for spring, and here it is used in this beautifully designed kitchenCan you guess which white this is??

The color is Cloud White by Benjamin Moore, a classic.  It’s a fresh, clean white without being too cold.  Just like spring.  I’m sure we’ve discussed this color before since my blog is 10 now years old….can’t believe it!



And your positive thought for the week, which is also perfect for a new season…


Grateful for the peeps in my life who feel like sunshine.  Also grateful to you for adding brightness and cheer to my days.

Wishing you a productive and sunny week!

P.S.  If you’d like to see a casual shot of our completed laundry room closet organization, leave a comment and I’ll add it to my IG stories for you.
