Well I guess it's about time I posted something on my personal blog..been busy trying to keep two other blogs current!
This afternoon I wrote a story about a couple in the next town who won a $25,000 makeover from the Desperate Landscapes show on the Do-It-Yourself Network for their front yard and house, situated on a quiet, dead-end street.
I'm acquainted with the wife, so I felt a real attachment to the story. She grew up with my neighbor and they have been best friends since childhood.
She also shares my first name, which is always fun. ;-)
Please give the story a look ~ it's a heartwarming one.
The couple has two children: a teen-aged son, and an eight-year old daughter with special needs.
They had more than their share of problems with a contractor several years ago. He left their front yard in a state of disrepair, they said.
Their property was a mess and they couldn't afford to fix it.
Now thanks to winning a contest for having the ugliest yard in New England their home and the yard look absolutely beautiful.
I'm happy for them! They deserve this good fortune.
