I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
We've had some summer showers, and yesterday I actually got a nap, which was a pretty nice Mother's Day present, especially to the sound of rain. (smile)
We've done some work in our front yard this spring, including moving our driveway, removing our front shrub bed, and painting a little of the porch.
Our plan is low-maintenance, so my handy husband built four flower planters for our front porch. Other than a few hydrangea shrubs and the flowers in the planters, everything else will (eventually) be grass in the front yard.
I finally finished painting the planters and we went out and bought soil and annuals. I think they turned out to be such a pretty addition to our porch and I can't wait for the flowers to grow and fill in.
We have some sod to lay in the front and a tiny bit more painting and then I think we are done with our outdoor improvements (for this year anyway)!
After the rain it seemed like everything in the garden grew at least a few inches and our hydrangea bush by the front porch is decked out in blooms.
I just love the variety in color.

Such a nice relaxing weekend... maybe a little too relaxing since all I accomplished on my to-do list was planting some flowers!
I am so thankful for my little family and feel so blessed to be the mother of two beautiful, sweet, healthy girls. I always knew I wanted to have children, but could never have imagined how much joy they would bring!
Did you do anything special for Mother's Day or did you just enjoy time with your family?
