We got to our spring planting this weekend and Hubby did the first grass (weed, DOH!) mowing of the season. He also had his first sneezing fit of the season... LOL... Oh well, he knows how to handle the seasonal allergies now. While the gardening can be a lot of work, we so enjoy making our little property pretty and inviting. We spend a lot of time outside from now until late fall, so a beautiful landscape makes us very happy!
While none of our property is perfect, we just go with it. I REALLY wanted to cover our concrete side porch and steps with decking and create a little seating area right off of the kitchen door, but no dice. Maybe someday! Instead, I jammed our beach umbrella into a planter and stuck a chair & side table under it right next to the concrete porch. Hey, it works and is a great spot to have my morning coffee when time permits...
What is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

We've all worked long and hard becoming ourselves, no need to be like anyone else. Comparison is the thief of joy, after all.
Be yourself. DO YOU. I promise you will be much, much happier.
Happy Monday and have a great week!
