My Little Secret

So, I'm going to let you in on a little secret I've been keeping: I'm curing my home!  This confession is a little bit embarrassing, because I am going to show you some photos of our home that are not so glamorous. 

Last week was the first week of Apartment Therapy's Fall 2008 Eight Step Home Cure.  One of my favorite blogs to read, Apartment Therapy is great for home inspiration and ideas and their Cure strategy is life changing.  It is a fresh approach to designing a functional home and living environment.  I unofficially participated during their Spring Cure earlier this year and it made a huge difference in our home. 

I'm really excited to get more organized and finish making our house a functional space that works for us and can truly be our home.  If you want to play along you can visit their website and/or buy the book.  I highly recommend purchasing a copy of Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure.

During the next eight weeks, I will be updating my blog with my progress and will be posting some photos of the changes as well.  Wish me luck!

You are now officially a witness of my house before the Cure.  How exciting will it be to see it afterwards?

Let me know if you want to join me and cure your home.  Leave us a link in the comments so we can see your progress.

I love the apartment therapy cure, I have looked at the before and after photos many time and wanted to do it. But I think I'm afraid to commit. Thanks for the inspiration! It is a bit hard to do when you have a pre-schooler and a toddler...! :)

Dear Corynne I must say i just spent the last hour or so looking at the last 3 months of your blog. I miss you guys so much, and your kids are...breathtaking.

I'm not being cheesy or trying to make you feel...something, when I say that I hope I am half as good of a mom as you are.

I wish you were coming over thanksgiving, but I pray you will have a nice hearty meal with...whoever it may be.

I love you lots, your cuz Grace
