Lately (in between photo shoots, editing, creating albums, and you-know, tending this child of mine) I have been cleaning/reorganizing/attic-ing like crazy.  Yes, I just verbed that noun.

When Matt and I bought our little cottage 3 1/2 years ago we thought it was HUGE.
No really, we thought it was ginormous. We thought we'd never fill it up.
When we moved in we had only been married for a few months and we had like 5 pieces of furniture to our name, all of which were hand-me-downs.
It took us 4 hours and a moving van to completely move and unpack in this humble abode.

But since then, we have had a child, I learned to reupholster, and I started an in-home(ish) business.
And NOW peeps we are BUSTING at the seams.

I have always taken a lot of pride in the fact that we are pretty good at getting rid of things, but when you have kid, it's a whole new ball game especially when we plan to have more someday.

So for the last few days I have taken on the task of cleaning out every closet/nook/cranny and we are putting things in the attic that we don't think we will use in the next year or so (like books, decorative things that I'd like to keep but don't have room for, baby things etc.).  We are craigslisting a bunch of stuff too…
It's been a lengthy process (and we aren't done yet) but in the end it will be worth it.

Which us luck!

These pictures have nothing to do with this post.
I just LOVE those curls.
