Happy meal plan Monday! I got home late Sunday night from the Haven Conference in Atlanta, GA to a beautiful display of Origami flowers the kids helped Zach make for our 10th Anniversary since our second car stopped working (which was only a $500 alternator fix, PTL) and they couldn’t get real flowers.
It was so sweet!
After being gone for several days there is always a lot to do to catch up, and this summer one of the things I have totally fallen behind on is weeding.
So you can imagine how grateful I was when my sweet M.I.L. offered her green thumb to help clean up my flower beds!
I can’t wait to build our forever home and design every square inch of landscaping with the thickest weed barrier I can possibly find. Haha.
I am going to need ALL your landscaping tips.
Also can we talk about Google memories for a minute?
Ya know how they will pop up on your phone – “3 years ago today . . . 5 years ago today.”
This was a “5 years ago today” photo, and I had a moment.
Where did my baby go?! This little man is truly one of the sweetest 6 year olds you will ever meet, and his baby brother has no idea just how lucky he will be to have him as an older bro.
Moving on before I become a puddle of tears, one of the other big projects I am working on is decluttering our tiny little cottage home.
One of the realities of living through home renovation is that it often feels like it takes as much time to prepare a space as it does to actually renovate it.
The basement is our last big project for this house before we put it on the market, and I want to do a massive house clearing before starting.
And you guys guess what?!?!
Lord willing, after 8 years of renovating homes we will officially be on the market to buy our forever property this spring/summer!!
It doesn’t mean we will find the property we want next year, but the fact that if we do we are finally ready makes me want to cry for joy.
It will be a dream come true, and I am seriously SO SO excited to share it all with you.
