I have this dream of turning my backyard into this fun, inviting, dreamy little bungalow. What I don’t have is know-how, any effing clue how to start, or the money to do it. I know that I want to get rid of this crummy little swing set and put in a croquet field. I also want to remove the old nasty shed under our deck and build a patio – complete with hanging lights, and I want to put in a fun little fire pit and bbq area.
I can just picture myself sitting on the patio on a beautiful day like today, reading a book, listen to my children laugh and have a great time – all while drinking a margarita. Of course in reality, the kids will be half killing each other, the dog will probably poop on my pretty patio, a spider will fall in my margarita, and a mosquito will most definitely give me zika virus.
One day soon my back yard will be my haven. My 5 year plan includes making over this space and giving us a fun place to hang out when the crazy Missouri weather allows. 5 years seems doable…. baby steps, right?
