Gardening 101

What you need in order to have fruitful garden:

Nutrient rich soil
Plenty of water

Looks like we have the watering part under control!

Two weekends ago we built a raised garden in the back yard.

Olivia helped me plant tomatoes, Romain lettuce, green bell peppers, cucumbers, basil, parsley and a few yellow marigolds just to pretty things up a bit!

Olivia likes to help, and everyday we check on the progress of our garden. Can't wait until I can make a fresh salad with fresh garden veggies!

We "Heart" Picnic Lunches

We love us some picnics! Dining on a blanket in the open air enjoying sandwiches and macaroni salad on a mild spring day. Love. Love. Love.

Today, Olivia and I met Kevin at the Clemson Botanical Gardens, and despite the fact that it was raining when we first got there, the shower quickly passed, and our picnic lunch went off without a hitch.

My baby girl (who, by the way, is no longer a baby) can't get enough of being outside and soaking in every moment of this beautiful weather.

Olivia's Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

Olivia turned the big 3 on Saturday, and we celebrated the occasion in Minnie Mouse fashion.

Did you know it's almost impossible to find red, white and black Minnie Mouse themed party decorations?? Well, unless you order everything off Etsy where you're virtually paying someone to custom make everything. So, instead, I opted to custom make everything myself. Minnie was everywhere!

Olivia had a jammed-packed day full of family, friends and lots and lots of fun!!

Thank you to everyone that came to make Olivia's birthday such a special one!
