This week, the animals came.
If you ask me — and you’re reading this, so I’m gonna interpret that as a solid yes — raising kids, dogs, and cats is hard, but keeping plants alive is harder.
That said, I absolutely adore having a Japanese-influenced design added to my beloved money pit. It’s everything I wanted and more. (And by more, I mean more to be alternately blissed and mama-bear-righteous about.)
So thank you, landscaping company, for adding a whole new component to my chapter as a determined homeowner, and enduring my frequent emails, fraught with frets and photos. I don’t regret a minute of it.
