Our Flowers

 

Yeah!!! Our flowers didn't die while we were on vacation!! In fact, they grew like weeds. I always wanted window boxes and gosh, I just happened to marry a guy that could build an airplane out of wood if I asked him to. Darin hooked me up with the CA-utest little window boxes. We had worked so hard on the inside of our home that our outside took some neglecting until last fall. Darin's bro is a master at landscaping so for our wedding gift, he spent a week at our house planting, digging, and creating our yard bling. These boys are a dime a dozen.. NO JOKE!! And no, there are only 2 Holsopple boys and Eric is also married off.. SORRY bachelorette blog friends!

 

LOVE that picture. I played around with it on Picassa and that is what I came up with. Gosh, I LOVE FLOWERS especially in my window boxes!!!

 

You know what's sad? A FOR SALE sign is going to be put in our front yard very soon. =( Ah... bitter sweet. We got our house appraised and we should make out extremly well since it used to be junk and now it's pretty, but this was our starter home, you know? So sad. And to think about all the time and energy we have in this home and will start from scratch in our next junk home.. AHHH!! It's a tad overwhelming!

For now, I'll look at my window boxes and get happy again. =) Yes, it is that easy to divert my attention. Gosh, I love those things!!! Posted by Picasa
