~Dream Come True~


Our children sent in a letter and a photo of the our garden, to 
Romantic Homes Magazine.
 It was truly a dream come true seeing our garden being featured in the article 
We Love / My Home.
Since moving into our home 22 years ago, our children have helped us create a beautiful garden.
We want to thank 
Jacqueline deMontravel, Meryl Schoenbaum and everyone at
 Romantic Homes Magazine
 for featuring our garden.
And a special thank you and hugs to the best children a mother and father could have. Thank you for a wonderful Mother’s Day and Father’s birthday present!

  9. Congratulations! That is awesome! I totally enjoy the photos you take of your garden for your blog, your garden is such a beautiful and inviting place. How fun that others (via the magazine) get to enjoy it, too. I like gardening with my young kiddos, wonderful time spent together. I love the family history your garden has for your family.
