Happy Birthday Little Gem

It has been right at a year since we put in two new Little Gem Magnolias.  I have been very happy with the progress of the one in our front yard.  I think I have decided to let it grow naturally and not try to trim it up like the one that was in our backyard when we first moved in.  I love the really old magnolias that were allowed to grow lower limbs and are now monsters in the front yards of pretty old houses along downtown streets.

Here is his one year progress report:

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
