I know I've featured cone flowers on the blog before, but I just really like them! They're such neat shapes, bees love them, and they remind me of my grandma :) Do you have a flower you just can't get enough of?

|I gave these out to people helping with the move. Fewer questions = less stress!|
But before I take time off, I wanted to share with you the moving plan that made things go oh-so-smooth this weekend. I found the basics on Pinterest (where else?), but I expanded on the brainchild of blogger Shannon Brown from Find the Joy in the Journey.
Brown's system labels and numbers each box with a corresponding sheet that details what exactly is in each box. Brilliant brilliant brilliant. If I need to know where anything is, I look in my handy binder and then find the box number that matches.
To make my move go even more smoothly, I added a color coded system. Each area of the home we were moving to was given a color. Then, each box number was marked with that color and each piece of furniture intended for that room was marked with a coordinating post-it flag. No more questioning which chairs are for the dining room and which go in the office! To make things even clearer, I labeled the rooms at the new house and gave my moving helpers a reference sheet... just in case.
|Anything for the living room was labeled yellow|

Thanks for understanding my need for a break! I hope you all still visit on Saturdays, and I'm definitely planning on popping by your blogs while I'm on hiatus :) Take care!!
