So, in an effort to improve our home’s “curb appeal” (a term that makes me gag), we’ve been doing some minor landscaping in front. It didn’t take much — just a few bags of cedar mulch, a couple flats of flowers, and a few hours’ worth of weeding but I think it has made a huge difference in the appearance! The mulch really makes everything “pop” in addition to adding some color. We have a couple mums, some petunias, and some marigolds (which Jake picked out because apparently they were talking about marigolds on an episode of Max and Ruby. I will have to remember to take some photos. Drew also added some stepping stones to make a path to the front steps and redid the bottom step (which was a little steep and awkward to climb). This weekend if he has time he might stain everything so it matches. We’re trying to do a bunch of little projects like this and then we’re going to relist the house. It has to sell, right? Third time’s a charm, right? I hope so because I just can’t take it anymore!
