lots going on these days. so excited for spring and summer i can hardly stand it. last weekend we repainted our patio chairs (previously white and rusty) and got the backyard ready for some excellent garden parties and grill outs. our garden boxes, my homemade birthday present from mr. paul, are ready to go with the seedlings i've been coddling inside. and our beautiful plum tree is in bloom right outside the kitchen window. perfect.
