I am super excited to team up with the Home Depot to write this series of posts on fixing up my yard, ‘cuz I couldn’t have done it by myself! This is a sponsored post….
My front porch is sad.
It’s Springtime– finally– and my porch is barren except for sidewalk chalk graffiti and handprints my daughters have made from crushing up sidewalk chalk in the dog’s water bowl to make paint.
I have dreams of having a Pinterest worthy yard— blooms everywhere, flower gardens out of a movie, but my knowledge is… how shall I say… extremely limited.
My husband is the green thumb and he has traditionally done all of the gardening in the family, but this year, I wanted to be involved. I’ve always wanted to be the type of person that does yoga, and gardens and since the whole yoga thing changed my life I figured gardening might do the same thing.
Last week me and Sister Wife packed up to go to a speaking engagement I had in Tupelo. After going to the bank and gassing up the car I checked my email one last time and found a message from the girl who had booked the event which read: “Can’t wait to see you next week!”
NEXT week. Sister Wife saw my face and asked, “WHAT? What is it?”
“Um. It’s next week. I’m not supposed to be in Tupelo until next week.”
We laughed hysterically for a few seconds and she said, “Well drive somewhere, we got no kids and all day to play!”
We headed to Jackson, i.e., civilization to do a little shopping. I was really excited to have Sister Wife with me at Home Depot because that woman is the member of not one but TWO garden clubs. I’ve always been intimidated by plants because I know nothing about them. Sister Wife made the trip infinitely more fun but as it turned out, I met Lucy, a Garden Associate (who had no idea I was gonna blog about her), was super sweet and helpful! Stay tuned for to see my Thriller, Filler, Spiller adventure with Home Depot!
