Still here!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've blogged! Lots has happened at our house since my last post...

1. We painted the bricks surrounding our fire place, it was the quickest & cheapest solution to that "black hole" of a wall.
2. Lee built an awesome 4' cedar shadow privacy fence all by his self, he is so talented!
3. We've begun hanging art on the walls and that makes me happy.

and now it's time to LANDSCAPE!!!

I had a local landscape designer over to tell me what type of plants will thrive in our shady little yard and now its time to cut out some flower beds & fill them up. I can't wait. Spring has sprung in our neighborhood, it is BEAUTIFUL! I'm so happy to see all the Wisteria that surrounds my house and to hear so many birds singing in the morning is the best. I adore our little hidden neighborhood, it's like a secret garden!

Right now my main concern is whether or not to paint the exterior brick, thats a tough decision. And I've got to convince Lee to build a nice pergola off the back of the house over the patio, get a new roof and replace some doors, then maybe we will take a small break...maybe. : )
