Everything Is Blooming!

The peonies are gorgeous this year! (I know, I should have given them a basket for support before they got so huge... There is always next year)

Still working on pulling together the landscape in the front, but it's getting there! We tore out the overgrown evergreen bushes that flanked the steps - any suggestions? I'm inclined to rip it all out and start over (keeping the peonies of course!) but I like the maturity of some of the shrubs.... I think we are adding a Japanese Maple somewhere to the left of the steps, but besides that I am at a loss.

Going to work on the veggie and herb garden this weekend!

Had the Grafton girls over a few weeks ago. We had a great time and it was my first brunch party. Couldn't resist the tulips at the store. I think that means that spring is on its way!

Backsplash! At Long Last!

Justin's brother, Jordan, did an AMAZING job installing our backsplash tile last week. I'm still smiling every time I walk into the kitchen. Oh - and he added almost all of the hardware to the cabinets also. Yipee!!!

Trim around the cutout between the living room and kitchen/dining room and we'll be nearly finished!
