…favorite things friday: patio

We are in the midst of designing a patio for our backyard. When we built our home 5 years ago the backyard went on the back burner. It is more complicated than it seems. Thank goodness there are so many resources out there for design ideas like Pinterest and Houzz and even Google images.

I thought I’d share with you what we are thinking.

Fireplace, pizza oven, Green Egg Smoker, flagstone, hopefully a portico. Yea, it’s a big list. Here’s where we are at the moment.


Hay, mud, spray paint and Reid holding the plans. Oh boy. But, at least we are moving in the right direction.


  1. We use ours all the time….can’t wait to see your progress

  2. I’m a little behind on my blog reading, due to out of town guests and my own yard work, but I have to say, I really appreciate the picture of Reid holding the plans – helps remind me that we all have simple small beginnings. Thanks for being real!
