I love my AeroGarden! Never did I expect when I mentioned it to my sisters that I'd actually receive it for my birthday this past March! Talk about excited. Well this past June I actually made the time to put it together and get it going and holy moly -- it's really cool!!!!


Just look at the basil -- it's done so well!!!

This picture doesn't even do it justice. Looking at it today it's 10x as big!

Thanks Jenny and Jillian for my awesome, easy-to-use garden!

Reality ...

Wow! Ohmygosh. Did ya'll see this? Jaace is as tall as me (if not taller -- I've got 3" heels on!!!!).

I just noticed this. Awww. Makes me sad a little. He's grown up so much. He'll be in 8th grade this year and turn 14 in December. I can still remember the day mom & dad told us she was pregnant like it was yesterday. I'm sure some of ya'll can remember it too. Now he's playing football, into girls, growing his hair out, just all those "growing up things". I just love him to pieces!
