painted the door, and then Jack helped plant a little garden out front.
Since then, we have made a few more changes. Our first house number was 1330, and we had bought house numbers that we never used. THIS house is number 10, so I dug out those old numbers and slapped them on the front door.
We have also hung two hanging plants on one side of the porch, and we have put Bruce the Blue Spruce next to our little red bench as well. Another switch we made was to hang a few stars outside to balance the one window. Our first house had one lonely window out front just like this one, so this is more or less the exact same arrangement we had there as well! So how about a picture of how it is looking now?!
Here is a closer picture of the little garden out front. This thing was a labor of love, not because it was that hard to actually plant, but because Matt and I had to first take out a nest of yellow jackets living under the porch. Ugh. Not fun, there was a lot of shrieking involved on my part, and THEN those sneaky yellow jackets tried to make a nest in on of my side mirrors on my car. The horror! AGH! But anyway...the flower bed...
