Random thoughts on a summery Saturday morning:
1. I cannot thank you enough for the kind e-mails and DM’s and sweet notes about “The Graduation Song” that my husband wrote. I wish you could have seen his eyes twinkle when I read the messages to him.
2. If you are following along on Instagram stories, then you saw the yard progress last night. If you are not about Instagram then here is the Reader’s Digest version. We have half the fence installed and painted and now we are working on installing a 15′ x 15′ patio. We had to pull out layers of dirt with a Bobcat and now we are adding in a layer of gravel and pavers.
It is a tough job supervising.
3. If you’ve ever wondered about Thistlewood and how it started and why we jumped and why we jumped back? I put it all together a fun set of stories for you. There’s just five of them and you can see them here.
4. It was such a fun week on the blog. Truly. We talked about how to clean wood floors (with a little bit of water controversy) and I shared a Father’s Day gift guide and I showed you my summer home tour and we discussed the CUTEST free DIY charger project.
