My Garden Romance story starts at home. We are building a house and I am currently deployed to Iraq, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, so my wife dug up a little of the dirt and sent me and a lovely card so I could be at the home opening.It’s the little thoughtful things that she does that makes me love her so much. I know it’s not the most romantic thing, a little dirt, but it goes a long way to getting a little closer to home. I smell it often as the dirt here is mostly sand. It means so much to me.
