five years ago

Five years ago, we had just one spunky two year old girl with us in our little white house in the suburbs of Kansas City.  We had just put all new windows in our house, a fence around the backyard, pruned our gigantic trees (so they didn’t crush the house in those wild storms) and we were filling the entire yard, wall to wall, with a garden. We planted every kind of vegetable we could think of, made raised strawberry beds, brick walkways, brick-bordered herb beds, and planted a berry patch with three kinds of berries.

Little did we know we were about to sell everything and move to Colorado–in six months!  Such fun and crazy times.  But life hasn’t gotten any more predictable since then…and that’s a good thing.  🙂

    It’s funny looking back and knowing all the twists and turns that happen next isn’t it!

    Those twists and turns keep life interesting. Wow. It’s hard to imagine you anywhere but at home in Colorado!

    I like seeing the old Kansas pics….all the pretty brick work in the garden and the fence David put up…lots of energy for all those projects !

    Yeah…sad we had to leave it, but I’m sure it was good practice for something else down the road. Now we just have to figure out how to grow things in only a month or two of warmth!
