Happy Friday 5/24/19

Happy Friday! It’s Memorial Day weekend and I hope you have some fun plans! Garrett and I are taking a little break from renovating this weekend, trading our work boots for sandals, and taking the kids to see some family. After a month of pretty constant work on our garden, we’re all really excited for some downtime!

Our Garden Patio is Ready for Summer (Plus a Giveaway!)

Make sure to enter The Company Store giveaway at the end of this post for a chance to win a San Mateo patio set (the same collection as our’s)!!! Giveaway closes June 9th.

Happy Friday! How was your week? I don’t want to jinx it, but we’re having the best Spring weather. Garrett, the kids, and I basically spent all week outside, working on our garden and building a patio. Our outdoor furniture delivery is due next week, and I. Can’t. Wait!
