I’m linking up today with my girly Andrea and showing your pics of my yard.
I love looking at pictures of where people live (inside their homes and out), so I’m excited to go through the link up today and see all of the yards. Fun, fun, fun!
Okay…we pretty much live in our backyard during the summer. When Andrew and I started thinking about what kind of house we wanted to build, we knew we wanted a great outdoor space with patio living, a pool and a playground.
The yard was most definitely Andrew’s vision. I took this picture of Andrew over two years ago while on our property…
…see him waaaaaay out there? He is looking at what would become our backyard. He kept telling me that they would build our house up high and then the yard would go down. I’m not going to lie…it was hard for me to see exactly what he was talking about at the time.
But here we are today…
This is the view from our patio. There is a creek that runs behind all of the houses on our street and empties into a little lake. Behind the creek is our back fence and then a greenbelt…so, you really get the impression that you’re out in the middle of nowhere when you’re in fact, in the middle of town. Andrew also planted trees along our wrought iron fence on all four sides to keep the backyard more private (since we have neighbors on both sides).

On the patio.
This is a view from inside the house of the creek (it was raining and that’s when the creek gets going).
And my favorite view :).
So, that’s our backyard. I can’t wait to look through and see yours too!
