I really can't say it enough!  THANK YOU all for checking in, and leaving your thoughts, emails and comments.  It makes each and every day an amazing one, and I couldn't be happier to be apart of the uber supportive blog family.  And for those of you toying with starting a blog, take the plunge!  It's such a rewarding and motivating tool, whether you want to use it to share family moments, home improvement projects, photography, cooking, organizing or scrapbooking!  There are readers out there for everyone!  And the family and friends you will gain is incredible!

A huge THANK YOU to my personal friends and family as well!  My family is there to help me keep the blog going, whether by helping with projects, giving up some of their mommy time or just keeping their personal spaces neat and tidy day after day!  I have an amazing clan, I wouldn't trade them for anything!  And my friends are equally supportive and amazing, checking in and giving me ideas, thoughts and feedback!  A big sloppy wet smooch is going out from me to all of you!

Here is hoping there are many more milestones to come!!

  11. Hi Jen,
    I first discovered your blog a few months ago. I then checked out your etsy shop and ended up buying my daughter julia a chore chart which was so pleasant easy breezy and has been a wonderful help to our hectic morning routines. I want you to know that your blog is my favorite favorite favorite blog online. Seriously, there are so many great blogs but there is not one blog that I visit everyday and I literally wait for your next project, story, etc. I even love hearing you complain because you seriously crack me up every time I read your witty posts. My husband runs away from me when I say"wait you just have to hear one more thing she said". I'm constantly talking about you to my daughters. One of my daughters is at sleep away camp and I started sending her pics of your ideas and she started a whole organizing system in her bunk and I was so impressed on visiting day to see her shoe boxes all categorized. I recently read a post where you wrote how sometimes you sit up at nite looking for pretty storage containers. You can't imagine how much I relate to that. My favorite thing to do. Just wanted to give you some positive energy and feedback from me across the country in Westchester county NY because I really think you totally rock.
