I've been busy weeding flower beds, transplanting peonies, mowing, and weed whacking over the past few days and our yard is looking like a million bucks. Aside from using muscles that have been dormant for awhile and feeling the repercussions for a few days after, its really been great. Maybe its all the extra sunshine I've been getting, or maybe its the flood of endorphins a little hard work & elbow grease ensues, but I've just been so giddy-happy and motivated lately. There's just something great about the moment you step back a few feet from the product of your hard work and see a definite change for the better. I am so thankful for the beautiful, sprawling lawn that came with our lovely home. Somewhere around 7:30 in the evening, when the wind dies down and the constant rustle of the trees quiets and the world gets still, I find myself looking around in awe at our picturesque yard, basked in the golden glow of the descending afternoon sun. Its moments like that that make me ask myself how I got so lucky.
Here are some of my most recent instagrams for your viewing pleasure.
|Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet nail polish.. obsessed doesn't|
even begin to describe my feelings for it.
|The prints on my new "high/low" maxi dress. Can't wait to|
throw it on this summer on a breezy afternoon
|breakfast for dinner, complete with pork chops and|
Cracker Barrel copycat pancakes. Heaven.
|I rediscovered one of my all time favorite songs on XM|
radio driving home from spin class. I used to play this song on
repeat when I first moved away for junior college. Its a
great song to wake up to in the morning.
|After, 3 months of waiting patiently, the beautiful tan leather|
loafers I ordered from Madewell arrived. Much to my disapointment
they didn't fit... and they are now currently sold out of the next size up.
|4 hydrangeas, my gladiolus bulbs dug up from another flower bed,|
and two Siberian irises, so far. I still have a bit of work left to do
but its a start, right?
Have a lovely weekend!
