Every time we're here, I waver between being delighted that a yard could be so lovely and being disappointed that mine doesn't look like this.
But it's always good to have something to strive for.
The nice thing about a long weekend is the opportunity to do a bit more visiting than usual. We spent a pleasant afternoon on the deck at my best friend's childhood home. The kids splashed in the pool and we lounged in the chairs and the day slid by quicker than I wanted it to.
