Do What You Want

IMG_0303

The things in life that make my heart skip a beat aren’t heart shaped or red or in the words of a card.

They look something like this.

Me :(standing in the back yard talking to my husband)

”You know the gardener we have here this week helping me said he could build two raised beds behind the little house and wouldn’t that be a great space in the back of the yard because of the sun and our current beds are in the shade most of the day now and Valentine’s Day is the day our extension agent said to plant tomatoes and wouldn’t that be great and it’s near a water hose and I could plug in my IPod on the little house back porch and sit on the little house patio…”

Me: (pausing for breath)

My husband:  “Do what you want.”

Just like that.

”Do what you want.”

Love your blog! I'm counting down the days till I get to this exact thing (garden spots)! I'm so excited about the gardening season beginning here in Arkansas.

Amen sister! We all have different things that make our heart beat...you plant tomatoes and I'll plant rose bushes. :) Then send that gardener friend my way.

Sounds like my HUSBAND:) I just showed him your raised beds and I said wouldn't that be nice? He said we would have to find the soil to fill it with:) Love him! Where do you get all of that soil?

Happy Valentine's Day dear Laura! HUGS!

Yep, ITA. My heart doesn't skip a beat from flowers or candy. It's all those day to day pleasures that mean so much to me.
