Backyard Inspiration

As we begin our backyard remodel, (it's really more of an "overhaul"), I've been gathering images that capture the feel of the backyard we want. 

I love this yard, because the shed is part of the scenery. We have big plans for our shed!

This picture inspires me because it looks so relaxing. Just what a backyard should be!

I love this space. It seems perfect for entertaining and I love the use of the mirror. 

Our side yard is also getting an overhaul and this picture shows how much character can be given to a small space. It's a nap spot, a reading nook and a place to have tea . . . All in one!

Do you have any big home projects going on in your house? Anyone else out there about to tackle a huge backyard project? Do tell!

Winding Down . . .

As Summer comes to a close, I thought I'd share a few of our favorite Instagram pictures from the past few months. 

One of the things that we will miss most about Summer is all of the great concerts at The Mountain Winery. With great food, a great view and always great performers, it's the best venue we've ever been to. 

Lazy afternoons spent outside, eating Mexican food is always something I miss in the dead of Winter.  Luckily, we spent a lot of time doing that this Summer!

A Beach Day is a Good Day! We love spending Happy Hour at the Crow's Nest in Santa Cruz. Great food and views!

Wedding Season! We attended two weddings this Summer and both were beautiful. This pic was taken in San Francisco, just before the bride walked down the isle.

This pic was taken at our 4th Annual Pinata Party. We hosted 40 of our favorite people and had a blast. 

Is there anything better than a mint mojito on a hot Summer day? The answer is, "No. No, there is not."

One of the most exciting moments of the Summer was celebrating my brother's high school graduation. Hard to believe he's all grown up now!

What were some of your favorite Summer moments?
