Getting There





With this new house, I gained the best and worst yard I've ever had. By that I mean I never had so much of a space, which is fantastic especially in a city setting. But the worst part is it has pretty much gone untouched for 10 years. You can all guess what that does to a yard. But the last few days brought some serious improvements compliments of sweat equity. Hubbie really needed to get a mental break, si I think it helped him digging in the soil a bit and planting some grass seed. It certainly doesn't look near as good as these fabulous spaces, but its progress. One can dream.

I can completely relate! We bought a house three years ago that had also sat empty for ten years.. We've been able to get the inside where we want it to be {almost ;) } but the yard.. yikes! This is our spring/summer to create curb appeal as well! So glad I came across your blog.. stop by and visit me Jolena @ Black Ribbon Interiors/ 1131Designs.blogspot.com
Take care and I look forward to hearing from you..

We're just starting our garden now - after living in our house for over two years! We had the house to keep us busy during that time but now I can't wait to see things grow around here!
