1 – The weather was really nice earlier this week, and the sun was out! Puppy Ollie went on his first walk on Wednesday, and he was a SUPERSTAR. He also went on his very first boat ride last weekend. Here are a few pictures. Proud mama here.
Poor Jax doesn’t care for the boat when we are underway, which is why his tongue is hanging out.
Some of you may think that this sporty Hawaiian-inspired life jacket might be a little girly for Ollie, but he’s adorable no matter what he wears. It’s actually his sister Lucy’s and he’s borrowing it until he grows a little bit more.
2 – My beautiful sweet pea seedlings! Look at the difference a week makes. Do you want to try to grow some too? You can read my blog post on sowing sweet peas HERE.
I’ll be in my greenhouse this weekend sowing more seeds. You can check out my progress on Instagram stories on Sunday, so make sure you visit!
3 – I shared a blog post this week about sowing snapdragons. These seeds are the tiniest little things you’ve ever seen, but they make the most beautiful blooms you could ever want in a garden.
4 – I was thinking about my childhood the other day. Who is old enough to remember bringing home the Scholastic book order form and trying to figure out what you wanted to buy. I loved getting posters to hang in your room. My favorite poster was of Shaun Cassidy.
What’s one of your favorite things you remember from your childhood?
5 – Antique Candle Co. has some fresh and fruity new faves for spring.
- Grapefruit is a bright scent of sugared pink grapefruit and vibrant citrus zest
- Lemon Eucalyptus is a fresh aroma of bright lemon, sweet orange, and eucalyptus
