Goodbye roses; see you next year

I just cut my last roses of the season. They are slowly withering on my kitchen table. It is now the time of year to close up the house and focus on indoor projects. I can hardly wait for spring already!

I've always felt that as a wife I should have my "wifely thing" that I enjoy. Some women love to cook, some love to clean, some love to sew. I've tried all of these things, but never really loved doing them. Also, I love my boys, but I don't wake up super excited to run around the house and play cars all day. Some mothers live for every moment spent with their children - I need my "me" time.

2 years ago I discovered that I love to garden. Gardening is intimidating because everyone can see my failures. If I stitch something wrong or burn our dinner, no one sees it but my family. If I plant flowers in the wrong area or over water - everyone see it (although I have found that no is really paying attention!). Now, I live to get outside and enjoy God's creation! My son is only 2 months old, and our house is a disaster inside, but I found a couple of moments to get out and plant some bushes and bulbs. My goal this winter is to get our indoors put together so that I can introduce some indoor plants to bring us year-round joy.

So long roses - see you next spring!
