Welcome to Our Back Yard

When we went house hunting earlier this year, we knew we wanted a great back yard. One that would be large enough for entertaining, have decent landscaping, and have plenty of room for a certain little boy to explore. We also knew we wanted to live in a neighborhood, so we were faced with a challenge. When we looked at this house, and saw this back yard, it was definitely a major deciding factor in which house we purchased. Every morning I look out and am in awe, it’s beautiful, and peaceful, and we’re still in a great neighborhood.

I love sharing our new home with you- stay tuned to see what we’ve been up to inside!
