The Cottage

I have some new clients that I am pretty darn excited about.  We are new friends and have known each other for about a year.  But this is first time that we have worked on any organizing together.  They recently had the ability to travel abroad for an extended period of time and upon returning to their home they realized it was time to make some changes.  When you live out of a backpack and barely have any of your possessions with you for an extended period of time it ...continue reading
