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.

Gorgeous. It’s funny, how owning a home can make a huge difference in one’s perspective. I used to think I hated gardening. Turns out I just hated gardening on other people’s terms. Now that I have a space that’s all mine, I love puttering around in the dirt.
I completely agree with this. I was reluctant to do any yardwork for a long while. Then I realized my yard is my canvas as much as anything else in the house, and got some much needed guidance and help putting it all together. It’s not something that comes easily to me but I am surprised by how much I am enjoying it.
