If you follow me on Instagram, or caught the mention in this post, you already know we recently installed sod. I’m planning a post for the how-to, but in the meantime, I’ve been inspired to totally overhaul our yard to create an oasis to escape to. When it isn’t sweltering outside, that is. We’ve been […]

Happy SUMMER! I hope you are enjoying some beautiful weather out there! Phoenix is hot already, but hey, we knew it was coming. Besides, we had such a mild and gorgeous winter, I’m not even about to complain. Well, at least not to you!  I’ll save my whining for Joe. HA! Since the heat set […]

How’s it going? So, I know I’ve bragged about our garden this year (see here and here) and I’m seriously just so freaking impressed with it that I’m not even about to take all the credit! No kidding, I was just telling Joe that I think the eclipse earlier this year, and the blood moon and mother […]
