10. Actually getting a lot of things cleaned out and making my junk drawer go from the first to the second

What did you have to smile about this month?


  1. love the clean drawer! I need to do some of that myself!

  2. Those photos of Ryder are adorable! My youngest turns one this week and I feel a whole crazy mix of emotions about it. It feels huge!

    That drawer transformation is awesome! How would you feel about stopping by to tackle a few at my house...doesn't that sound like fun?

    Have a great week!

  3. Love those pictures of Ryder, especially the one where he's using the toy to get to the piano! Reminds me of Buster when he was young.

  4. YAY for clean junk drawers!!!

  5. I still am sooo impressed with your junk drawers!

    Ryder is quite a little monkey. ahaha.

    You def have lots to smile about. :)

  6. Your drawer looks SO GREAT!! Even if that wasn't the exact goal, I vote you win the IC club this month. ;)

    Fun pictures. And a love note already?!?!? heh heh

    I do have my fingers crossed for your new house. Can't wait to hear more about it! When do you find out?

    i'll link up soon.

  7. That is some serious organization skills you got going on. :)

  8. I have never had a tidy junk drawer! Your little guy looks so darn cute using the toy to get to the piano keys. lol

  9. Whoa!!! Your junk drawer is amazing!!

  10. I can see why not getting lockjaw would be something you would be very happy about.

    I'm still waiting for my son's first love note. I have a feeling he's already got one and is not telling me about it.

  11. My junk drawer need to look like yours. What wonderful family photos!

  17. Great pictures! Very impressive drawer! And a love note from a girl? We haven't had that yet, I'm kind of dreading those days ;)

  18. I feel like I was a part of all of that, and I completely agree, those are some perfect May moments!

    Ryder's 1 year photos are some of the best I have ever seen. Adding that hat was genius.
