Getting spring ready

prepping for spring in any way makes me all giddy inside. It’s full of bright colors, sunshine, warm weather, and daily walks to the park (for Beau and I). Here in Arizona spring comes earlier then most states (not complaining) so this week I’ve been doing some yard work and planting. I’m no green thumb by no means but I love a beautiful yard and view. Like I’ve said before… make your home a place you want to come home to. Make your home as if you’re always on vacation. So here is what’s been happening in my backyard oasis…. 

These are my babies. Just recently planted and are loving their new home! Nice pop of color.

you cant live in a warm climate and not have some sweet citrus trees. I have 2 lemons and one blood orange tree. I already have tons of buds on them and they smell so sweet.

Patios are important for outdoor entertaining which is something I love to do and wish I did more of. Outdoor living is Big here in southern AZ. After all we do have the best fall, winters, spring, and summer… well our summers might be long and a little too hot! This is my outdoor living….

I also love small spaces…. and this one is one of my favs!

We’ve had a great 2 days of prepping and now we can just sit back, relax, and enjoy our spring! I hope everyone has a beautiful spring full of colorful things and full of blessings in life!!!
