Garden Progess


The garden was late going in this year due to 
1. me deciding to rip out, level, rebuild and fill 4 new garden beds with nice soil in hopes of garden success.

Then covid hit and I just had one finished bed filled with wildflowers and no food.

Overall, it was still very helpful to overall morale during lockdown, but a good reminder to hustle and finish the rest so I could plant some veggies.

Long story short, everyone bought all the seeds while we were stuck in quarantine with symptoms (while we waited for our negative test results) I still haven't finished my fourth bed, deer are destroying my life, in spite of our fence, and things just aren't looking as good as I had hoped. BUT they still look good and I'm grateful for what we have.

Our (less than) Beautiful Backyard- June 2020

Well, like the rest of everything, 2020 has not been a stellar year for our yard.

This week in outfits

Like most other Americans, I have used the extra time spent in my home to re-organize and CLEAN HOUSE!

I will readily admit, I love my stuff. I am not a minimalist and never will be, but there is something that just feels so GOOD about being in a space where you absolutely love every single thing therein. 

About 5-6 years ago I started to buy into the Marie Kondo trend, but it has been a long slow process ($$$) and while we're no where near finished, I think I've come much more into my own style, and my home and wardrobe are finally starting to be more reflective of that. 


That being said, even I'm wondering how I ended up still owning this orange number. Hahah. It is linen and wool, so the quality is nice?

I only went into the office 3 days this week, but I had a TON of work to do, so I did wear leggings all three days, knowing I'd go back to real pants next week (uuuughhhh. tomorrow).


Maybe next week I'll also wear a different pair of shoes. LOL.
