It was beautiful here yesterday.
It's starting to feel a lot like Spring, which makes me miss you. I love how we gravitate toward flowers and happy colors as soon as the air even hints of warmer weather. And that's exactly what happened: I got my front porch ready for Spring. And for you.
See this rug?
I made it. Not the rug, but I decorated it. It was a $15 utility rug from Lowes. After some tape and some blue spraypaint, I have this beauty. Aren't you proud?
I got a little carried away in the flower department while I was there.
I got lots of pansies.
And snapdragons, because they reminded me of my wedding. Remember when the florist put those in the arrangement and we couldn't believe how perfect it was?
I also got these, but I can't remember what they're called. They're adorable. Especially with the little birdhouse stake that you got me for my birthday.
And look who has taken up residence here...
Remember when I got this at the flea market in Raleigh?
That was a fun day. Maybe I'll make a trip up there for a weekend so we can do it again.
And look how cute this corner is!
I got all those baskets at Tuesday Morning for just a couple of dollars.
And I printed those bird sketches and put them in Dollar Tree frames. Cute, right?
PS: Rudy misses you, too.
This is where we'll sit when you come to visit.
I can't wait. Every time I walk out on the porch, I see this:
And I think, "That's mom's chair. I sure do miss her."
I can't wait to see you again.
