Photo 1: Our backyard (aka...Chloe's playground). Note the shed in the back left. Tim and Ian poured an 8 X 10 concrete slab themselves. Dad, Tim, and Ian put the shed up! I am so proud of how all the projects were done by ourselves. It has been a lot of work, but so fun to see come together. We're still working on the landscaping. Oh Steph, the wine barrel heart is hanging on the beautiful orange tree!
Photo 2: Our patio. Tim just had the tile put in. He hung the light fixtures. Mom and dad got the patio furniture and swing (its outside the patio in the yard) for us as an engagement/wedding gift. We have really enjoyed this furniture for dinners by ourselves and with friends. I still need to hang better lights around the top. I want to hang the kind of lights that are more of a round bulb...like at Mozzarella's or Macaroni Grill. We love this space for breakfast too. It's great to look out on the yard. The patio looks directly at the tree/floating garden in photo 1 where the leaves are changing colors.
