our new yard!





we found a great landscaping company Bert Bouler Landscaping www.bertbouler-landscaping.com and we now have a new yard! Bert was great, spent a lot of time in the estimate process speaking with me, drawing plans etc.  He really stuck to our budget and helped me cut costs by getting us free mulch and paring things down as needed.  His guys on the crew were AMAZING-super hard workers and they left the yard so neat each day.  He works in association with Diane McGovern who is the "plant lady"-she came over to see the yard, ask questions and get an idea of budget.  She was well worth it, I loved everything she brought and she also saved me money-love that! It only took them a week to dig beds, rototill, re-route our sprinkler system, install 4 arbors that they built, plant, lay mulch, build 3 vegetable planters, lay partial sod and fix our sprinklers in the front. Oh and they installed a new sprinkler timer.  Here are a few pics-our yard before was just a big square of grass!

bath time

A song for my mom on Mother's Day....

So, I know this song is meant to be sung from a man to a woman-but since my mom passed away, this song has always made me think of her.  She loved Willie and I do too.  It really is how I feel, especially at the end of her life-like I could have done more or said more.  Anyway-here it is Mom, this is for you.  Miss you so much. xoxo
video is below to hear it!


Always on My Mind (Willie Nelson)
Maybe I didn't treat you 
Quite as good as I should have 
Maybe I didn't love you 
Quite as often as I could have 
Little things I should have said and done 
I just never took the time 
You were always on my mind 
You were always on my mind 

Maybe I didn't hold you 
All those lonely, lonely times 
And I guess I never told you 
I'm so happy that you're mine 

If I made you feel second best 
Girl I'm so sorry I was blind 
You were always on my mind 
You were always on my mind 

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died 
Give me, give me one more chance to keep you satisfied, satisfied 

Little things I should have said and done 
I just never took the time 
You were always on my mind 
You were always on my mind 
You were always on my mind
