This March


 A few exciting things happened this month..

We got a new shed! We weren't really planning on buying one anytime soon, but they had a display model for sale at lowes, twice as big as the one we were looking at and already built for about the same price, we couldn't pass it up!

We built a privacy fence between our yard and the neighbors, which I am very excited about. I don't like people being able to see me when I'm outside in the yard..


The bulbs I planted last fall have been blooming, this was one of my favorites.

I couldn't help myself from trying the Starbucks birthday cake frappucino. 

I have been on a mission to make better tasting coffee and bought a french press. I can definitely taste the difference and am obsessed with it already. My next step is the start buying whole beans and grind them myself!


We took a trip to Clemson South Carolina for an organ concert.. I'll be doing a photo an hour post on it soon!

Annnd I added two new members to my camera family!

March was definitely a better month than January and February! Spring has officially started and flowers have been popping up all around. I have been loving the longer days and warmer weather.

I can't wait to see what exciting things April brings (Lets hops it brings a new job!). I am looking forward to spending lots of time outside and putting all my cameras to use!

  1. Yay! Happy to feel a little more positivity here :) And yes, freshly ground coffee makes all the difference! Shawn and I are still on the market for a good grinder (the one we're looking at is just under $100), but stepping up the coffee game with a french press or pour over is a great start!

  2. Loving your new shed, it looks so cute!
    And a birthday frappucino? I need to get that in my tummy very soon! (that's if they make them here in the UK, otherwise I may just die) xox

  3. Oh, look at your pretty shed! What a beauty! And I agree on fences and privacy, I wouldn't like not being able to freely move around in my own garden...

    Great month!

    Have a fantastic day,

  4. I love crocuses, I noticed a couple have come up in our garden which I know I didn't plant! That's been one of the fun things about inheriting a garden, you never know what might pop up! I miss the hedges and fences that you have around gardens in England, especially in front gardens, everything's so open over here! I'm being typically English in also preferring to sit on my back deck, I hate people being able to see and watch me if i'm out on the front porch! We have a fenced in yard that backs onto a park so it's not overly private, but we have a lot of trees and adding in some more bushes so it's not so bad!

  5. Dang girl, you own your own house?! That's so wonderful- I just got jealous thinking of all the rooms and doorways you have, haha! And I've been meaning to get a french press for forever but never got around to it. It's just been instant coffee for years over here. It's motivating to hear that you actually taste the difference- is there a favorite coffee that you've been using? i'd love to step up my bean game :)

  6. March sure looked like an awesome month. It must've been exciting to see your new shed pull up. It's such a darling shed and looks perfect with the garden, spring bulbs and new privacy fence. Nothing like home improvements to shape up your space. I love it when I drive home and see my wonderful garden welcoming me home. I'm looking forward to a summer bbq chez Sarah.
    Love your 'new to you' cameras & french press. Do you want to try the electric coffee grinder I have?

  7. What?! Starbucks birthday cake frappucino? How have I not heard of this 1 b4? Was it good or was it too sweet? I'm tempted to try the Zaxby one but it's probably too sweet 4 me and I can only image the calories are off the charts.
