7 Years, No Itch

Yesterday was S's and mines 7 year wedding anniversary.  Wow, time does fly!  I am so lucky to be married to such a wonderful woman who does EVERYTHING for our family.  I love you baby!

Because my mom is in town visiting we didn't do anything romantic to celebrate.  Instead we did so,e hard manual labor.  No kidding!  We went to breakfast and we're talking about how we didn't know what we wanted to do with our day and I mentioned how I'd like the flower beds out front that were full of rocks to be dug out and planted.  So we powered up with coffee and went to town.  It was soooooo much more work than we anticipated.  I thought with the three of us we could get it down in a few hours but it actually took all day.  But it looks awesome!  Some before and after pics
Hard to tell, but along with this bush and some junky tree weeds growing in this bed there is also like six inches of gravel/railroad rocks.  Ugh, the people who owned the house before us must have two tons of the stuff in both the front and mostly back yard.  I hate it!
S working hard to dig up the six-eight inches of rock plus a few bricks buried in there
The beautiful after!
It looks even better in person and is going to looks so dang cute after I go get a new flowery wreath for the front door.

A sweet friend also got us an edible arrangement which was so yummy!
And my sweet mom got us a new gas grill!  The one we had she bought for our wedding present so it was really cute of her to get us a new one for our anniversary.  I love it!
