David bought a gazebo for the backyard. I've been eyeing them for a long time and when he saw a great price on one at BigLots, he bought it. Decisions of where to put it in our backyard went back and forth, mainly because we don't have very nice neighbors on one side of us. (There's their pool that we have view of -- left of the garage in the background -- but I think I'm going to be changing that view soon. Another addition of "fix the backyard" coming up.) I'm on the hunt for ideas on how to accessorize the gazebo; thinking hanging baskets on the sides and a hula hoop chandelier on the underside (it's made with a small hula hoop, duct tape and white icicle lights.) Be on the lookout for ideas for me -- I'll be searching Pinterest, too.
The area on the left is our firepit and chairs. I L-O-V-E s'more nights with friends and family. Since we didn't go camping this holiday season, I need to make sure I have a s'more tonight and just take time to relax.
