A Tree Tail

We have lived in Jonesboro for 7 years now. We have lived here the whole time and like our little area of the world. People ask me if I ever get house envy and as a whole I really don’t. I envy nice screened porches, laundry rooms and large front porches, but never has there been a house that I felt I had to have. Ok so there was 1 house we both liked and almost purchased my first summer in real estate but God never gave us complete peace. I love that about our Savior. 
We needed to do tree work when we bought our home but put it off year after year. This past month Randall said to call and get it done….so that I did. I try to do what he says, you know. 

We have taken lots of pictures with our cute boy between these 2 oak trees. It has provided lots of giggles and smiles. I took this picture the day before the tree came down. It was like or little ode to the oak. 
The best part of the oak was that it held this swing that swang my sweet baby day after day.  In fact, when they cut it down the string that held the swing was still in the tree. Henry Patton adored swinging on this oak tree. Honestly, that’s why we’ve kept it…we hated tearing it down for sentimental reasons. We are sappy suckers. 

It’s now gone. Henry was checking it out after school as you can see. Our tree guy was raking the last of it up in the background. It was surreal and exciting to see it gone. 
At the road we had 2 ridiculous pine trees uprooting our driveway. We had no sentimental value attached to these and were anxious to see them gone. Bye bye to never ending pine needles. 
Here is the view without the pines. Yay.  Henry had his umbrella checking it out and watching the guys work. He loved coming home from school the two days they were here and observing it all. It was cute and they were most patient and kind to Henry. I appreciated that. 

Here is our home with 3 less trees in the front. We are glad to see more sunlight hit our flowerbeds now because we might actually get good growth on some plants. We were so pleased with the service we received and the ease it was to get it done. 

Ok, this is probably the most boring post in the history of Life With My Sister but I had to record this for my sake. So,  if you plant a tree for tomorrow in honor of John Denver please think about its placement and what it will do when it matures. That’s my public service announcement.

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
