Backyard Living

Now that it’s finally summer in Seattle (sort of), and we’ve had our first 80-degree day, my husband and I have been spending as much time in the backyard as possible. We recently purchased this umbrella for the deck and I decked it out with some lanterns. I think they’re so romantic!

I love it when the sun goes down, and we turn on the lanterns! J and I enjoy a glass of wine on the deck after the kids are in bed and it’s just us (us and Paisley the dog!).

I love summer! (P.S. If you’re wondering what those oddball things are on our side table (besides the wine), they are our four-year-old’s bug catching paraphaneila. He currently has a pet spider that he trapped.)

    Ah, decks. I can’t wait to have one someday. Although you are a lot better woman than I – the idea of trapping any bugs freaks me out!

    What a fantastic back yard oasis.
