Yesterday, was quite possibly my favorite day so far this year as far as weather is concerned. It is pretty awesome how the warm breeze and sunshine can instantly make you grateful for all that’s around you. It was a great way to end the week. I left work, ran home to my favorite dudes and we had an early Mother’s Day dinner with my Mother in Law and my brother and sister-in-law. I’ve known these people for such a huge part of my life, it is nice to catch up and chat over food haha.
Before we left the house I was in awe of how quickly our gardens went from not happy to green and flowering so I snapped a few pictures. Our backyard is turning into the magical wonderland I was dreaming about all winter. We must have 5 different kinds of Daffodils in our garden. They are so beautiful AND double what they were last year which leads me to my next big idea…
I want to be a bigger gardener this year. Cultivate this hobby, if you will. We have some plans to create a raised garden to share with Evan the magic of fresh berries, greens, veggies and herbs from our own garden this year. I think it will be a great learning experience for us all. We don’t have a large garden but I think we have the perfect super sunlit place to create a fresh garden that we can expand on every year. We MAY try to tackle this this weekend because my hubby has some time off. yay!!! There is something therapeutic about being in the garden and I love that with some TLC you can see some amazing results.
We are getting a lot of work done around the house, or at least getting prices so we can fix some things that we really wanted to improve/replace. Including a fence to protect Oso and little Evan. I think it is going to be gorgeous addition to our home and can’t wait for it to go up. *fingers crossed* we get a better quote from a very high rated place I’ve found.
Owning our home has definitely made us weekend warriors when we are home together. We are always tackling something home related it seems, but the rewards are great and we are filling our lives with so many memories. It is a really great time in our lives and I’ve been working towards writing down all the wonderful things that are happening around us because it is easy to let the negative things slide in and take too much of your energy away from what matters: love, family, health (oh and my garden, haha). Can’t wait to show you blooming pictures of our magical tree in the backyard!!! It will likely bloom today or tomorrow a perfect Mother’s Day gift you can see the start of the beautiful flowers:
With that we are off to a doctor’s appointment and maybe brunch. Followed by shopping… Seems like trips to Home Depot and Menards are a weekly occurrence ;-)
