My nesting instincts have always been quite strong. Even as far back as my teenage years, I can remember devouring the pages of Colonial Home and Victoria magazines.
Many years later and seven months pregnant, my nesting instincts are as strong as ever. Not only do they motivate me to create a lovely nursery for our little ones, but they propel me to organize the house from top to bottom!
In fact, my Mom's visit this past week was centered around feathering our nest (with tasks organized on paper in my favorite form - a 'to do' list).
The list included tasks such as organizing our coat closet...
...Trading summer coats for fall and winter, and filling baskets with scarves and mittens.
We also mopped the kitchen floor, ran a few errands, and of course, worked on finishing up the last details of the nursery.
