Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Day of Gratitude 2: B

Ok, so these posts are kinda smushed together, sorry for that!

For this second day of gratitude, I had to come up with something beginning with a B that I'm thankful for. I came up with...

BACKYARDS! Specifically, my backyard. While it is not the nicest, largest, most elaborate backyard, I am so grateful to have a little private retreat. We have done quite a bit of work back there, which has taught me a lot about yard work, myself and my relationship! We have a lot more planned for it too; I'm very excited about the potential. For now, we have a great pea-stone patio with the perfect table for lots of friends and a cute grassy area with a gorgeous shady tree. We've had quite a few backyard BBQ's (another option for my B grateful item) with lots of friends, and the space has worked out quite well.

I could go on and on and share pictures of some of my fav inspiring backyards, but I'll keep this short and sweet so I can go cook dinner!

Our backyard is our next big project! Sod, a slab to put a fire pit on and way better landscaping is on our list. Yay for you and the work you guys put into your lovely retreat!
