I started this post a lot closer to Mother's Day but didn't finish it because I wanted a picture of the finished product. Now, I am finally finishing it.
I had been wanting planter boxes forever! I knew that Zach would want to make them look perfect, and with all his traveling the time was never really there for him to build them for me. I asked for them for my birthday, but it didn't happen because of his travel schedule. So, while he was out of town, he told me he was going to make me planter boxes for Mother's Day. He came home and we hit up Home Depot to get all of the supplies. Zach worked hard the next day to get them complete. It was definitely a full day project, but I am entirely impressed with his handiwork and am so happy to have them. Now I'm ready for the top soil and plants!
On a different note concerning this holiday, I (obviously) now love Mother's Day. Not only to celebrate my own wonderful mother (who truly is the very best and I love her and need her so very much), but because I love being a mother. Children truly are a gift from God and Terran lights up my life.
