bird house: megan's back yard

i mentioned yesterday that we spent a good part of the weekend making our back yard pretty. i had an urge to redecorate, so i took the need outside. we built the actual patio last year, just chris and i...and we have since been decorating (and redecorating) it. i always said that after the wedding, we would have an amazing back yard full of lanterns and lights, and it's slowly getting there. here is our progress so far (warning, lots of pictures).


 
























there you have it. if you live in the twin cities area, come on over for a drink! we'd love to have you!

xo,
