new sidewalks!

Last week, we were the lucky recipients of brand-spanking-new sidewalks. Yipee! (If only we didn’t have to pay for them… remember how I already whined about this? Paying for new sidewalks when the old ones are perfectly good is, apparently, one of the joys of homeownership… just one of the lessons we’ve learned re: homeownership in the last couple of months.)

Anyways, I give you the old sidewalks:

And now, the new ones:

The only problem is… now the walkway leading from the sidewalk to the front door looks old and sad. Guess we should have ripped up that concrete and replaced it with brick pavers also… oops. Another project for another summer, I suspect.

    Wow, those indents around the trees look kind of dorky! Are they going to circle the trees with a nice fence?

    You should see if Justin can get you on Curb Appeal! (Did you see his episode last night? I was way distracted by his pronounced Minnesota accent which I did not remember being so “O-heavy.”)
