1. you are so gorgeous i can see why your husband liked to photograph you weed whacking. gurl, you make those tools and overalls look fiiiiine. πŸ˜‰ your yard has come a long way baby!
    btw sarah and i had a conversation wondering how many stylish bloggers at haven would be wearing the newer trendy overalls in an ironic fashion. πŸ˜‰

  2. That is a lot of weed wacking! Seriously though the yard has gone through an amazing transformation. It’s so lush and green now.

  3. Baby face is right! Love seeing the transformation. I bet putting in those steps were a huge pain, but they look amazing!

  4. Gorgeousness…both you and your yard! πŸ˜‰ Seriously, though you are beautiful! We have done nothing this year on our yard and it is sadly showing,

  5. Wow, this is inspiring me to go back in my photo albums and look at old before pics..You are so darling, and beautiful then and now! Love your hammock- brilliant to put a rug on there, makes a perfect photo. Have a great week. xo Nancy

  6. Oh my gosh I am such a big fan of memory lane. And memory lane JULIA πŸ™‚ This was so great. I love seeing how small that tree was and then now… holding that hammock. Don’t they say that the best tree is the tree you plant today? Or something πŸ™‚ Love it!

  7. Dang, girl, you definitely have a green thumb! It’s beautiful. Need to see if I can get irish moss to grow in our zone, it’s totally what I need for our steps. Enjoy Haven!

  8. Wow! You’ve really made the place SO homey! And I love seeing old pics of you and your kitties;) Love the overalls by the way:):) The hubby and I are considering buying a new(ish) home in a few months, so this helps show me that you really can make a newer space feel homey and “lived in”. Pinning!

  9. The outside looks amazing!! I can only hope that in 14 years mind looks decent!! I’m not a fan of yard work, but I do love outdoor spaces. Yours is seriously incredible. I could swing in that hammock drinking wine and munching on cheese all day every day!

  10. This post cracked me up! You are hilarious. Honestly, what a transformation. It makes me want to lounge and stay a while. Have so much fun at Haven. I wanted to go so bad this year, but it wasn’t in the cards. Maybe next year!

    1. Thank you Jennifer. I keep wanting to email you back when you leave comments but I can’t find your email address anywhere πŸ™

  11. So fun! I love your yard….it’s come so far! And love the pictures of you, too….sometimes I miss wearing overalls….think I could still pull it off? Yeah, no.

  12. Love seeing what you started with. It gives me hope that I’ll have mature, pretty plants. Even if it takes 14 years to get there. Want to come help me landscape? I love your mix of plants!

  13. Gorgeous! Please come and teach me your ways – I have no idea what to do or how to landscape our yard πŸ™‚

  14. Such great transformation , Julia! It’s a beautiful and inviting back yard. Pinnng!

  15. Before and afters are the best!! Sometimes I pull them out to remind myself of how much progress I’ve really made. Wish, wish, wishing I was meeting you at Haven this year. Sigh. Maybe 2015!

  16. Your outdoor lounging area now looks so lush! And I love the idea of placing the rug on the hammock–so stylish!

  17. Wow!!! Wooww!! and WOOOOOWWW!! your yard looks absolutely fantastic… you’ve really done a top grade job with it…
