A Look Ahead

I'm always happy to see what my husband comes up with next for our flower boxes.

Check these out:

And, on top of being beautiful (whatever they are!), they're attracting butterflies and hummingbirds — which totally remind me of our Jamaican honeymoon!

Here are the new hanging baskets we got to replace our dead ferns:

In all honesty though, after we OD'd on yard work leading up to July Fourth, we let our yard GO! Everything died. You remember those peppers I was growing?? Gone! Last weekend, shame prompted us to take action. Things are looking good again, though we still have a lot of weeding left. And, we actually cleaned off and used our patio and grill Sunday to make delish cedar-planked salmon!

I don't know about y'all, but we're looking forward to fall and the absence of mosquitos! The cooler weather this week has been just what we needed! In our household, fall means family holiday adventures (the boy LOVES Halloween), the return of red wine, porch sitting and just overall happiness!

There are a lot of things brewing on the horizon for us. We have a really busy fall approaching — I'm helping throw a b-rette party and I'm going to be in my friend's wedding, to name a couple of things. Plus, Jonathan and I are approaching our one-year anniversary. Big things are coming!
