Written in Stone

The yard is a huge work in progress.

We've got almost 2 acres of property, and it seems at times that the majority of the property is overgrown in vegetation. The hubby does as much as he can, but the weeds grow fast. Needless to say, the hubby is weed eating on a lot of his days off. Last weekend, he cleared the weeds from the this retaining wall on our property to find a blast from the past.

The hubby said he remembers the day that his family built this retaining wall on the property (obviously in April of 1995). FYI- That's not my name on the wall, the hubby's sister's name is also Jessica. Weird fact, but true. And no, the hubby doesn't have a brother named Adam, Adam was the hubby's childhood friend who he is actually still friends with today. I told the hubby that he must have been sure him and Adam would always be friends if he was willing to write it in concrete :)

Here's where the hubby's mother wrote her name.

I think it's super neat to have this on my property. What an awesome memory to keep around.

The hubby was a little saddened by the discovery. He mentioned it was obvious from the discovery that his parents had planned to live at this property with their family, and it's sad that that never happened. Life happened instead, the hubby's parents are unfortunately divorced now. Still- a little piece of history is left in our care.

Time for some FANTASTIC news!

The hubby and I have booked our annual Oregon trip. We are going to be in Oregon October 25th- November 25th. I'm so excited! I can't wait, and of course, I'm hoping I'm better with my camera this time and remember to take some pictures. Or at least remind the hubby to take some pictures :)

I hope everyone is having a great week, happy Hump Day!
