I love IKEA, I love IKEA and I don't care who knows it. When Steve and I purchased our home, we were younger, newlyweds, childless.  So naive, so young, we had no idea that one day we would need storage, closets, you know somewhere to hide this mess... 
Lately, all I can think about is organization.  Organization for my son's toys, organization for my thoughts, organization for my life.  Anyone else with me here? Instead of daydreaming about pretty dresses and shoes, I'm  currently daydreaming of shelves, boxes, labels.  Sounds like a perfect excuse for an IKEA outing, right? Of course, to start any IKEA trip off right, you must have a little something to eat.
Follow that with a bathroom trip, and we're off, ready to discover all the wonderful possibilities! 
I think Henry loves IKEA just as much as mommy.
And did you know you can now become a part of the IKEA Family? Free coffee each time I visit. Oh IKEA, you had me at 'free'.
I mean, I get butterflies in my stomach just thinking of how lovely you are. You are magical, you inspire me, all you really need is an adorable mascot for me to take a picture with and you would be my Disneyland!
Okay, so maybe I'm going a little overboard, but it is a pretty great place, no?  Hopefully this weekend I will be able to get a little more organized. Hopefully you will get to do something you love, something that brings joy to you.  Have a great weekend my lovely readers!

Today's Reflection:
Lord, without the joy that you bring me, I think I might go crazy!  Thank you for the joy you give me, in the little tasks and the big ones.

"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones"
-Proverbs 17:22
