This is Where I Spent My Weekend

Our weather this weekend was as perfect as perfect can be. 

The new patio was completed about a week ago and the grass is just starting to regrow around the perimeter.

I LOVE my new patio.  Come on over and sit a spell.

Remember when I showed you the "before" pictures that my husband took around our house just before we purchased it?  Remember this view of the back yard with Champ the dog?

Here is the new and improved view of this corner.

  1. It looks wonderful!
    Did you do the work yourself? If so, is it hard to do? I’ve been thinking about doing one myself.
