Cleaning with Meaning

Saturday was one of those total-purge-and-clean day, and Spring Cleaning never felt so good! You see, we were throwing away years of stored junk, but we were also accumulating this huge pile (2 truck loads to be exact) of "YARD SALE" items. I've never hosted a yard sale before, but I am very excited about our upcoming one. Every item that landed in the yard sale pile marked a little inch closer to bringing home our baby from Africa. Every item trashed marked a spot that was a little cleaner and a little more ready for welcoming our child home. I (with Heather and Daniel's help, thankfully) am "nesting" as Daniel pointed out, and it feels so good. Those of you who know me, know that cleaning and organizing is not my forte...to put it mildly. Give me the daily choice between making pillow forts, playing outside in this beautiful weather, doing art projects with my boys OR cleaning....and I pick playing every time. And I am fully aware that more balance needs to be brought to this area, and I'm working on it and working towards finding a happy medium between playing and enjoying and soaking up my boys and husband and then doing the mundane necessities of house keeping. BUT, Saturday was a grand start in the direction of getting more organized and cleaning out our home! And I'm thrilled to see the outcome of our yard sale to benefit our adoption. With that being said, here are the details....we need your help!

414 N. 10th St.
Opelika, Alabama

How can you help?

  • Donate items to be sold at the yard sale (we aren't selling any clothing but everything else welcome!)
  • Volunteer your time to help us that day
  • Come shop!
  • Pray!

Email me if you would like to help out: littletaylorlights@gmail.com

Put some meaning into your spring cleaning, too! Every cent made will go directly towards our adoption fees. It takes a village....to bring our baby home, and we're thankful and excited to have you partner with us!
