Ten outdoor projects to get you ready for spring…and summer!
Hello, my wonderful friends!
I hope you are enjoying some warmer weather these days. Some of you have told me you are still getting snow. Wow! I can’t even imagine.
Hoping you get some warmer weather very soon too.
We have been hard at work over here preparing for something exciting. But wow, it’s a bit more work than I envisioned. Ack! In more ways than one.
But I will prevail!! haha I am determined and stubborn but know when I’ve reached my limit…and I’ve reached my limit on a few things and have decided to hand those over and get some help. So cryptic, I know!
I can’t wait to share more but you’ll just have to be patient with me and know I’m hard at work getting it all set up and ready.
Sadly it has taken all of our time and we haven’t been back to the beach to work on the condo. Hoping to get back down there soon because we really want to finish up by summer. (hahaha… that’s a lofty goal but hey, I’m still going with it ;) )
And since we are working like crazy on these other things, I haven’t had much leftover time to work on projects for the blog. I hope you will be patient with me in that regard too. I’m going to be sharing some fun round-ups of things instead that I hope will be helpful to you, or inspire you, over the next couple of weeks…and also introducing a brand new giveaway for the month of May soon too!! Yippee!!
Which brings me to our latest winner of April’s giveaway…Alison H!! A big congrats to you. I hope you are enjoying your goodies! :)
