My husband is pretty fantastic! He built my 6′ x 12′ garden box and I am so pleased with it.

Not one little princess or storm trooper showed up. I love seeing those beautiful little kids with their adorable costumes, but it wasn’t meant to be this year. Wherever they were I truly … Continue reading Halloween
