The backyard!

Happy Friday everyone! I'm super excited to share our plans for landscaping this week! You'll have to ignore my Kindergarten drawing but here is what we're thinking we want for the backyard...

Our front yard is already landscaped, so the only to-do out there is adding a path and bridge over our rock river so that people don't have to squeeze by our cars to get to our front door. But our backyard is a COMPLETE blank slate...all we have back there is a rock and a grill ! Now, we are definitely not landscape designers, obviously, but we kind-of have an idea of what we want. Our only criteria is a covered patio off the back of the house, firepit, and a jacuzzi. We're thinking we'll stick the jacuzzi in one corner (bottom left in the drawing) and the firepit in the other (bottom right). Then, we have a patch of grass with some foliage (lots of succulents!)around for Simone. We'll definitely need a lot of tall trees for shade because it gets SO hot here. Finally, we'll fill all the random areas with landscape rock and call it a day. This backyard project is probably our last priority because it calls for the most money and we don't really NEED it. I'm probably most excited about the backyard but I'll just have to wait! But, in wedding news! I recently got our favors in the mail, which I found on a discount website for 50 cents each! They're porcelain Christmas ornaments (that I'm going to hand paint) because we're getting married in December! I can't believe it's almost 4 months away, crazy!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend! -DIY Jill

PS: Ian and I are working on some of our to-do list, can't wait to share! :)
