crepes & a clean home


i don't know about you guys, but i've come to realize that a clean home truly is a happy home.

you can ask my parents & they will tell you that my bedroom growing up {& when i come home to visit} was a mess, to say the least. i lived with clothes all over my bed, the floor & stuff just everywhere. but now that i've got my own place and mark & i are the only ones here, somehow those little messes in every room don't just magically disappear! bummer, right? and when you are living in a tiny little condo, a mess in one room just makes the whole apartment feel cluttered & dirty!!!

during the busy work week it is especially easy to let all those messes go & before you know it...each room looks like a bomb went off. that's why i love doing a quick run through in the house on sundays. clean the kitchen & pick up the living room//dining area. {i don't usually bother with the bedrooms because, again, i can live with some clothes in there lol} i like having the house somewhat in order when monday rolls around so i can actually breathe inside my home...who needs that extra stress during the week, right!

anywhoooo...this morning mark suggested that we make crepes for breakfast! the perk of having a husband who lived in paris for two years, great crepes! so i whipped up some cream, cut a few strawberries & we made a feast out of it. :) 


^^^strawberries, whipped cream & homemade raspberry jam is my favorite!^^^

    PS When I was growing up, I kept a messy room! My mom invited my boyfriend to take a peak in my room. I was devastated. From that point on my room was clean (shoved under the bed and in the closet ~ but out sight) I am happy to report in my adult years I am neat and tidy!
