Spring Cleaning : All About Laundry.

Laundry is one of those things that kind of swallows me each week. Between PJs, workout clothes, sports uniforms (times 3 kids times 12 sports), school uniforms and everything in between, we have a whole lot of loads going through our laundry room on any given day.

I’ve got to admit, it’s not my favorite chore but this is a little roundup of a few things to keep you sane amidst the piles.

In old black-and-white photos I always see images of housewives wearing chic aprons and keeping their home immaculately. Since aprons are the core of our business, I had to remind you of a few reasons why you might want to consider wearing an apron while doing your laundry these days.

If you have a baseball or softball player in your home than you already know reason #1 - bleach! Protect the clothes you’re wearing from the stains + splatters of bleach and other soaps + water while you’re pre-rinsing or soaking, it’s a great way to keep you covered.

Most all of our aprons also have pockets, which are great for stashing clothes pins (if you’re still a laundry line kind of gal, which you know I love) but again if you have little kiddos the pockets are also great for catching miscellaneous items you might find in pockets like coins, crayons or chapstick (among other insane things I’ve found …), dryer sheets or one-off socks.

If you’re going to do laundry (ALL THE TIME) then I recommend you continue to keep the mantra of having only beautiful + purposeful things in your home. This is a fun little roundup I put together of items you should have in your own laundry room to help with the load and keep things lovely too. Let me know if I’m missing out on anything!

U-Pick Strawberry Season.

This time of year is just so perfect. Pollen aside, there isn’t much I don’t just love about late spring / early summer. One of our family-favorite activities is strawberry picking, loading up basket-fulls of fresh, plump berries to bring home and enjoy.

The weather and our sports schedule hasn’t cooperated just yet for us to head out to the local u-pick fields, and quite honestly the peak season here in Atlanta-area really kicks off early May so we have plenty of time still.

I thought I’d share these sweet photos from one of the last times we went when the kids were oh-so-young (tear). This was during an early March visit to central Florida just a few years back, the season starts much earlier there due to the warmer weather. We were down for Spring Training and to visit my Dad.

One of my favorite things growing up was attending the Strawberry Festival in nearby Plant City. It’s a huge event filled with people, music and literally every recipe you could ever imagine being made with strawberries - my favorites being fresh strawberry ice cream and strawberry shortcake (of course).
