Father’s Day Surf and Turf

IMG_3933 copy TITLE

It’s Father’s Day, Y’all (that’s an ironic ‘Y’all’ as I am not from the south). So, I guess that means once a year we have to get off our high horses and pretend that the men in our lives are deserving of our praise and appreciation. Insert: massive eye roll.

Spring 2018 Garden Update

IMG_3826 copy OPEN

We are back at it! The garden!! We had so much fun planning, growing, harvesting and sharing our garden with everyone last year we couldn’t wait to get going this year. We were even able to salvage a lot of seeds from last years vegetables to replant this year.

In this post, I’m going to be sharing photos I’ve taken on my phone over the last 4 weeks during planting and prep and then some I took this past weekend to show everything a little more “at home”.

I then awkwardly stood around the end of the aisle looking for someone who worked there because of the broken glass and I felt bad I broke merchandise in my excitement. When I finally found someone and alerted them to the glass and offered to pay, they didn’t seem to care (ok cool I’ll spend my $5 on more random stuff) and just walked away unphased. The sad part is that this was 2 years ago and I still think about that adorablely graphic “it’s fall y’all! on a perfect fall scented candle that I have never come across again. R.I.P- my basic chick candle bliss.
