the weather has been incredible the last few days – high 80’s at our house! with all that sun our roses have been growing like crazy. so we went into the front yard this morning after garage sale-ing and pruned and clipped our roses. there was a lot more there than i expected, and they are sooo fragrant. they brightened up my house and inspired me to put some effort in other places of my house and make them beautiful too. i started with the cabinets under my bathroom sink. may not sound so beautiful, but the organization and clearing out the clutter and non-necessities felt great. i have high hopes to start on gracie’s quilt again when i put lily down for a nap in a few minutes. wish me luck!
