#1,960 Sunnies + Backyard’s Better.
by Erin Napier
Remember a million years ago when I gave Mammaw a pair of sunglasses? She’s still got em. She wore em for lunch today at my parents out on the deck. And I couldn’t take this photo of us twinning fast enough. This is my homegirl, people.
We took her back home afterward and checked out all the new fresh flowers blooming around the portico, still wearing her fly sunglasses.
Then we went home and broke our backs working in the backyard to finish up the last little bit of landscaping we’ve been gradually plugging away on for a couple weeks. I want to be 100% real with y’all. This is an un-Photoshopped image of the dirt pit horse pen that is our backyard. That white area in the grass is where Ben spray painted the fence without a tarp. The dirt you see is the race track Chevy and Baker have created. The stone path area was done by Ben and Jesse yesterday then fertilized in hopes of growing grass today. Full disclosure here—we’ve got a tough backyard, but it’s so much better than it was! Woo!
My posting will be sorta sparse and undetailed for the next 2 months starting tomorrow most likely, but I’ll be writing private blogs for my own record that I might get to share down the road. Hang in there, okay friends? I’ll miss you if you leave me!
