SPRING IS HERE
I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready for Spring. We are currently building a front deck at our house and I can’t wait to add fancy Anderonack chairs and a stunning rug and enjoy all that Spring has to offer.
The only benefit to this winter in California is that we are finally getting some much-needed rain, so we can’t complain about that. Give me all the greenery.
What are you guys excited about for Spring?
I’m excited about all the outdoor DIY projects, gardening, building a new fence and we are finally painting our house. We picked an adorable Nantucket blue and I can’t wait to give our country farmhouse a much-needed refresh.
