This past weekend felt like a Spring dream! Over the past few months Ryan and I have been easing back into gardening with a few potted plants here and there for our back porch, but nothing major. Just a hydrangea here, and a geranium there. We had been waiting to get the official all-clear from the doctor before we really got our hands dirty, and we got the green light!
As a celebration and gift our sweet neighbor and longtime family friend, Marilyn, took Ryan and I on what she deemed a “Garden Party”! On Saturday morning she picked us up and took us to the Winter Park Farmer’s Market on an official, “let’s get your yard back in shape” mission. Marilyn knows pretty much everything there is to know about gardening, so she helped us pick out trees, flowers, and shrubs to bring our back yard to life. I’m still not sure how we fit SO many plants in her car, but somehow we managed it! Ryan and I spent the rest of the weekend potting plants, landscaping, and re-routing drip lines to get our yard back to life. I can’t tell you how rewarding it was! I love the inside of our house, I really do, but in all honesty, I just want to sit outside all day now. It’s our little slice of heaven.
We still have tons more to do. Ryan has so many ideas for our little space (he’s the genius behind it all, see here) but for now, it’s perfect!
5 Things I’m Loving:
The Best Pants
I’m so obsessed with these pants. I featured them last Thursday here, and honestly I can’t say enough great things about them. They are going to become my new go-to uniform this Spring and Summer, especially on trips to the beach. The fabric and fit is seriously amazing. It’s like wearing pajama pants all day… but WAY better.
