Greetings, everyone! This is Scott taking over the weekly update (unbeknownst to Marsha). This is a busy week at our house - declared by me to be "The Week of Marsha" :)
It starts on Wednesday (Feb. 13) with her birthday. We have celebrated her turning 40 a few times now, but whatever. Thursday is Valentine's Day, which as you know, she loves all things Valentine's. And then the week concludes on Saturday with our 28th wedding anniversary. Yes, you read that right. 28 years! If you are wondering how I still look so young (and I know you are), I was 18 when we got married. Seriously, though. Still the best decision of my life.
With all of this in mind, I wanted to take an opportunity to give some honor where honor is due. All of you know her as the one who works with you on your Landscape Project or you see her involved in some new project around the property. The new structures at the garden center that will be ready any day now are all her planning and designing, and they are fantastic. She wears a lot of hats around here, for which we are so grateful.
However, she is much more than all of this. You see, long before her current role, she filled many others quite well. She has been my best friend since middle school. We still laugh and have a lot of fun together. We enjoy getting away by ourselves or with friends and family every chance we get. She played a major part in shaping our three children into the the adults they are today, and they all adore her. Did I mention that she even home schooled them for several years during our transition to NC? Those years still hold some of our greatest memories. She eats Mexican food out more than she would like, but does it because the rest of us all love it so much.
She makes our house a home and a place we all love to be. If you know her at all, you know that it has "her touch" making it the most comfortable place I know. I could go on and on but I think you get the point. She is amazing and if you get a chance, wish her a Happy Week of Marsha. And of course, don't forget to bring green home. You know she would want you to!
