The Unveiling

We went ahead and turned this.........

into something of beauty.

This is one of the first times I really really wish I were good at photography because I don't have pics to do it all.

You just don't grasp how our yard all of a sudden seems 3x bigger.
Or how it feels like we found a teeny piece of Hawaii and went ahead and uprooted it right to our backyard.
And I guess on that note we uprooted a teeny piece of BYU also?
Or how the fire pit and built in BBQ completes the Southern Cal feel.

But here's what I do have:

{now I'll have you know that I had to go through some stuff to get even these mediocre shots so when Yosh comes home complaining about "Why is the screen off and how are we gonna get it back on?" please help remind him that he wanted these "better" shots as much as I did. Get er done.}
{also imagine the red striped furniture replaced with these in the pear green come February}

Do note that I finally got my lime tree and palm trees I've been dreamin about. That's all I really asked for. 

{I feel like these next pics are undoubtedly putting me in the 30+ crowd... here's my new front yard garden} 

Melissa, if you're reading this you go on ahead and give your husband a slap on the booty for a job well done. His work even created a jealous lover- I've already gotten the "break-up" letter from our gardner, saying he didn't feel comfortable "maintaining someone else's garden." Interesante.

Let it begin...s'mores, basketball, grilling, fires....that's all you need to turn December into endless summer nights.
