Ahhh... we had the windows open today!! Halleluia. Spring. Isn't it amazing the difference in the way a house feels when there is fresh air blowing through? Total mood lift.
So Zach and I had the pleasure of spending the morning playing outside with friends, with no coats even! My friend Emily and I were discussing backyards... so much usable living space often going to waste, because we don't know how to go about improving it. It seems like you could create such a wonderful play/relaxing area with a little creativity. We have a basic yard... grass, a few trees, a wooden playset, and an occasional garden. So I'm kind of thinking over what the possibilities are for outdoor space. Do you all have anything in your yard that you just love? Anything your kids are wild over?
I have the most wonderful thrift store purchase to show you tomorrow after I get a few pictures taken. Soooo happy.
See those lovely flowers? I watched a friend's children one day last week, so she sentenced this poor plant to death by giving it to me. Isn't it beautiful? It's one that can be planted outside after the last frost of the season. I'm going to try my darnedest to let it live until then, but my track record isn't so good.
