Planning the Perfect Garden; Raised Beds

Well, a dream we’ve talked about for years has finally come true: we can finally plan and attempt the vegetable garden we’ve always wanted. After buying our home on a ton of acreage last May, we’ve been excitedly talking about what we want to plant, where we will plant it, and how we want to conquer all of it. We’ve talked to a ton of family members and friends who have raised successful gardens (and not-so-successful gardens) and made mental notes of the wisdom they shared with us.

Singing in the Shower… Love this Child. “Angel of the Morning”

She will likely hate me for this one day, but it’s adorable and I recorded it. She sings passionately no matter where she might be, and this recording of her singing “Angel of the Morning” is no different. Before she started singing this one (she knows the Juice Newton version) she was belting out Mac Davis’ “Baby Don’t Get Hooked On Me”.
