On a recent Target haul (yeah, going to Target is THAT dangerous), I picked up these plastic herb markers and wax crayon for my herb garden. I had previously considered the chalkboard kind… but it seemed silly to me, since any water would likely remove the writing. Or just make the writing run and look all gross.

I decided to fancy them up a bit by practicing my (not good) cursive and adding a bit of knotted twine. The best part is: there is no right or wrong way to tie them. Each one turned out slightly different, and that’s what I love about them.

With the odd exception of today, the weather is getting warmer by the day. So, I’ve been outside digging around and tending to our patio pots and planters. GIRL, dirt under my nails and evvvvverythinggggg.

It’s fine, I haven’t had a manicure since January.

Hm, excuse to get one?

Maybe so. (Like my rationalization?)

For real, I’m trying my best to spruce things up in time to use the patio for entertaining before it gets WAY TOO HOT. Because if you live in NC, you know ALL TOO WELL that springtime goes a little something like this:

Day 1 of Spring – Wow, what a pleasant and beautiful day… I wish it could stay 75 degrees forever!

Day 2 of Spring – DEAR GOD HOW AM I EVEN ALIVE IN THIS HUMIDITY RIGHT NOW OMG I CAN’T WAIT FOR WINTER AND SOUP.

Have you starting grilling? Planting herbs and veggies? Decorating your patio or deck? I’d love to hear!
