This may not be big news to anyone but me, but it IS my blog. And I deem this extremely blogworthy.
When Matt and I moved into this house a little over a year ago, I fell in love with the two big trees in my new front yard.
And then... the ice storm came. And one of my trees ended up looking like this.
And finally... like this.
Recently, we had the stump removal guy come out and take care of the rest. It was a final goodbye to my beloved tree. Sniff. Sniff. Then last week, on Halloween, Matt's dad told Matt to hook up the trailer and they would go get me a new tree. But not just any tree... my all-time favorite. A magnolia! I know. It's a tree, Angela. Get over it. Honestly, I have been wanting a magnolia tree in my front yard since forever.
Isn't she gorgeous? Her name is Maggie, and I am crazy about her. Thanks, G-Pops. I may seriously cry when she starts to bloom. Who knew a tree could make me so happy?
