Summer Spruce-Up

Summer is coming! This week marks my last full week of work until August. I am anxious to tackle projects that have been waiting their turn in the back of my mind since we moved in back in December. Keeping track of the kiddos, working full-time, and completing everyday chores can be overwhelming, so I am thrilled to have at least one thing off of my plate for a couple of months while school is out.

The beautiful weather is a welcomed motivator as well- time for garden, patio, and fire pit decor! My latest Target find is this simple,  cheerful floral wreath- the front door has never looked happier!

Hello, yellow!

Besides adding color to the mundane brown, the yellow brings out the detail already present. Needless to say, I am loving it!

Speaking of floral…I finally started my garden on Mother’s Day weekend. Although I am starting small, I am thrilled at the progress it’s making already!

Cutest litte helpers 🙂


Helping Dad 🙂
They love to help!
Simple start with pretty petunias. I vow to keep them alive!
Pink Heaven
Tomato, To-MATO!
Hanging planters 🙂

The flowers add a homey touch to the front of the house. The tomato plant is in the backyard, and the sight of the little green Roma tomatoes sprouting brings me so much joy!!  I will have to video myself when they actually turn red, lol. Here are a few shots of the tomato plant, as well as the front of the house with the planters.



So much landscaping to do, but we’re starting small. 🙂

This week I plan on adding cucumbers and cantaloupe to the backyard. I’m an amateur gardener–so I figure if it doesn’t grow, at least I tried!

We don’t have many travel plans for the summer, so it’s the perfect time for us to complete a few household projects, with rest hopefully somewhere in between. What are your summer plans? Are you on the go or relaxing at home?
