365 Days of Happiness (157/365)

Happiness is Dogwood Trees.


The closer we get to closing on the sale of our house — I’m beginning to miss my garden.  Luckily, I’m getting a chance to enjoy the bloom of so many of our trees and shrubs “one-more-time” before we move.  Some of my absolute favorite things in our garden are the pink Dogwood trees that line our property.  When I moved to East Brunswick 15 years ago, I met a landscaper named Jeff Kumka of 4 Season’s Landscaping.  Jeff is retired now, but he did an incredible job landscaping our home, in a way that I could enjoy all 4 seasons.  Just.as.his.companys.name.promises.  <3   Jeff, I hope you are enjoying your retirement.  As I gaze out my front window and our master bedroom windows….the pink clouds that are the canopy of the dogwoods in bloom this week just lighten my soul.  I will think of you whenever i see Dogwoods in bloom.  Thank you for the joy of my garden these past 15 years.

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
