Wild Strawberry Shortcake.

Each year during the early Spring we try to make it down to Florida to enjoy the already-warm weather that I oh-so-miss in Atlanta that time of year. We hit up the beach for a day, catch a few Spring Training games and Disney for a day (because, #momlife) but my classic favorites include the Strawberry Festival in Plant City and taking the kids to pick fresh strawberries from the field.

This season I decided to incorporate sprawling springs of fresh mint from my garden (since there is SO much) and the outcome was so beautiful I just had to share. I really hope you’ll give this one a try – trust me, you’ll never go back!

    Planting your Farmhouse Garden.

    Though thoughtful and planned on the strategy side of things I'm kind of an impulse person with little patience. Once I've made up my mind on something I like to just dive right in and give it 100%. With planting a garden that can be hard sometimes.

    If you've been following along with my partnership series over on The Home Depot blog then you know just what time it is - planting the garden! I'd love to say I could just run into the Nursery Center, grab a few plants, dig holes in the ground and get to growing but we all know it just doesn't work like that. So after all the hard work and planning that went into the garden so far, this is really a stage in the process that I can honestly say I just love.
