Beyond excited for a long weekend of landscaping and gardening. We got started yesterday so we wouldn’t have to fight the crowds at the garden store and stocked up on everything we need for the front of our house. You can watch our progress on @thecozyranch IG stories, but we are also filming a video for YouTube. I’ve never been so excited to dig holes and mix soil with compost (though we know Craig will be doing the digging), haha. Wishing all of you a great long weekend! If you missed it, a sale round-up for MDW is here.
