Dreaming of Summer

It's rainy, windy and cold here in California, so I keep finding myself dreaming about sunny days. Since we've moved into our new home, we have neglected to fix up the backyard. (Mostly because we needed to focus our attention on the inside of the house). We have ideas about what we want to accomplish in the backyard, but can't do a thing until this weather clears up. We dream of removing our pool and transforming our backyard into more than just a back yard. We want an outdoor room!

Here are some photos that I have saved over the past few years to serve as inspiration for when we finally are able to tackle our yard. Enjoy!








Beautiful, right? A summer night spent outside is the best! What is your favorite way to spend a warm summer evening?

  3. Is it impolite to invite myself over once the renovations are done?
    It's been cold here for so long I can't remember what I do on a hot summer night. The sun is coming back, right?
