I don't recall now how I first came across this website, but this letter featured in the post linked below was one that moved me to tears...

I would like to give you your own history

Pool is Open :)

The pool is open :)

and..while I continue to wear an air cast due to a stress fracture in my right foot, and am off work for a total of 6 weeks,yikes!

Tony has been busy planting and just generally making our yard a more beautiful place (and I so wished I could've helped!!)

This is the front of the house with the new garden walls, birdbaths and bench

                  and this is the side of the house

and the new walkway to the pool

Enjoy the spring and summer :)

Love is in the tank :)

Someone gave us a second aquarium, so my husband asked me if for Valentine's Day/our anniversary later this month we could get more fish. (because nothing says "I love you" like..."hey baby, let's buy some more fish"? lol.

Seriously, we had a lot of fun, deciding to move all the Cichlids to the bigger aquarium, getting a few more of them to go in that tank

and then getting some different kinds of fish for the smaller aquarium (plus getting new decorations to put in both tanks)

Love is what you make it, I suppose..and in our case, it was aquariums this year :)

plus, it was time to get a new computer chair...the other chair would slowly descend randomly while you were sitting in it, and suddenly you would feel like a preschooler sitting at a desk for high schoolers or something, with your chin practically on the it will be no surprise to anyone who knows my husband that This was the chair we got!
 Happy Valentine's day everyone !
