OUR SUMMER GETAWAY


I like stepping right outside my backdoor and feeling like we are on vacation!
It's a good thing since there will be no get-away trips this year!
The beach will have to wait until next year!
So, for now, we are putting a lot of effort into making our outdoor living space
look and feel pretty!

 

To me the perfect staycation, is when I can lounge at our house by the pool, with a cool drink in hand and steaks on the grill. We love to decorate the patio with beautiful seaglass colors of summer, garden lights and lots of colorful plants, among lacy ferns. Family makes it all complete. It’s a peaceful and relaxing place to be. It’s also the perfect opportunity to play tourist in your own hometown! the perfect staycation is when I can lounge at my house by the pool with a cool beverage in my hand with steaks on the grill. I love to decorate my deck with pretty things and lots of lights. When I look around, I smile and realize it all just makes me so happy!"the perfect staycation is when I can lounge at my house by the pool with a cool beverage in my hand with steaks on the grill.

  1. HI Estelle, Your patio and gardens look so beautiful. What a lovely place to relax and enjoy a summer day or evening. We are getting closer to having our new deck and pergola finished and will enjoy our backyard living this summer as well. I'm looking forward to decorating it and enjoy seeing what others have decorated with. :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy! Pam
