Ahhhh organization. How sweet you are. I honestly have a love for organization and creating areas that provide a “home” and space for items that life tends to bucket as miscellaneous and annoyingly “in that pile”. When we were planning out all the details of Little M’s nursery, I knew that I wanted to tackle a closet project. These boring closets that come in old homes annoy me.

I used to want to be a veterinarian until one {lovely} woman tried to give a bunch of 11-year-olds “the real-world picture of being a veterinarian” and decided to show us slide after slide of dead puppies.
