A lucky mother, indeed

Scott got me the pair of dogwood trees I've been pining for. He even planted them firmly in the ground with miracle grow dirt and a mulchy top. I like the idea of a Mother's Day gift that draws such a nice parallel with motherhood...you know, planting and nurturing and growing something beautiful and all that. I wouldn't go so far as to call us a family of nine now, but I do look forward to watching these two little guys get bigger over the years. Thanks, Scott.

Hooray for Dogwoods and thoughtful husbands. Can't live in TN and not have a Dogwood in your yard. A perfectly lovely Mother's Day gift and parallel.
