I'm BACK!!!!

After the craziness of my sister's wedding. Lee thought he'd take sometime off of work and I thought I would join him and we took an impromptu vacation . . . you know the kind of thing you can do before you have kids! It was super relaxing, we didn't go far . . . in fact we didn't even get a chance to leave at all. But we were able to tackle some projects around the house (nothing big, just some necessary things) . . . Max got some extra attention, and we both have a tan! ;)

Our Hydrangeas are finally in bloom outside and after 3 years our front yard is starting to look like we always planned.

A pretty Hedge of hydrangeas, being held back by a hedge of boxwood.
The boxwood hedge is about a year . . . maybe two years away from being fully formed but this is almost exactly what I've had pictured these past 3 years. 
I love it when a plan comes together!! 

 Thanks for sticking around during our little hiatus. I'll be back tomorrow with a nursery update . . . we hung a mirror it's super cute. We picked up new chairs for the living room, and I finally decided on a sofa table . . . FINALLY!

  2. hmm, i can see that you got some more ferns, and have that bench out, the one you guys made. :) it looks better than the bulky patio furniture... less cluttered. almost.

    I've been a fan for a while now (found you on iheart organizing) and I love how simple, clean and pretty your style is. I want to tell you about my new blog. I just started it two weeks ago. I'd love it you would check it out if when you have a minute!

  11. Wondered where ya'd been. . lol. I was having withdrawals. The front of your house looks fantastic. Nice ferns. . were the pictures taken before or after the theft?. . .creeps!! It's always nice to have some time off just to piddle around. No doubt little Max loved having his Mommy and Daddy around all of the time. He's probably a little bit spoiled now. . lol.
