This is our backyard, as of Saturday. We are getting close, but . .
we still have a LONG way to go.
We have come a long way though. This is the best before shot I have (pre-blogging days).
Next, we are designing the lighting. This is a project that Tom has put me in charge of, and I jumped on it! I have no idea what I'm doing, but I know how to look for inspiration pictures and copy them. We want to get the wiring in before we lay a path - the bricks are for the path that goes around the yard by the retaining wall.
I've had a lot of people ask me if we were done, yet - now you know!
My name is Laurel and I am a running, piano teaching, home making, mother of four! This blog is my attempt to show living a balanced life. I adore making pretty and practical meet, making little things special for my family, and keeping things "just so." I strive to be the girl that has all her "ducks in a row" - maybe someday.
