Seriously, you have no idea how happy I am that we finally may look like “normal” people instead of a perpetual construction zone. To save money (not a choice at this point), we’ve taken the slow pace on our landscape. We graded the yard last summer and seeded the front lawn. We did some foundation planting in the back yard, but we still had WAY too much dirt and not much green stuff. Tim went back to Colorado after our Louisiana trip a week earlier (for that crazy thing called the paycheck). And, I’ve never been happier than when he texted me these pictures.
