My New Happy Place

The day has finally arrived!! I'm officially finished building/decorating/planting my outdoor space!!! I honestly wasn't sure when the day would get here. The rain delayed it BIG TIME. I'm so proud of it. I have spent countless hours on this space and feel so pleased with how it turned out. I was worried it may look like a big blobby mess. I've never 'landscaped' or anything of that nature before. Sure I've planted flowers in a pot but this was a whole new ballgame. Anwho, enough with the talking. Allow me to show you the before + after pictures!


Dead grass, very blah, kinda embarrassing...

And NOW.....

Major improvement huh?! We poured a concrete patio and stamped the edges to make it look like brick. We added landscaping around the air conditioner. We did another landscaping area to plant a Japanese maple. We put in new sod because the old sod had started to die and grow weeds. We got new furniture and planted lots of new flowers in pots (as you can clearly see. Scott makes fun of me).
It's all just so very exciting! We can actually entertain people outside now! I can't wait to have friends over. I'll definitely have to plan something soon!! This is my new happy place. I LOVE IT!
