Summer Dreaming

Let's take a breather and remind ourselves it's Friday. That's always a great thing! Today I'm sharing some images I'm loving. With Summer on the brain {which truthfully, is an issue because I still have another month of school!} I find I'm lingering on webpages with gorgeous outdoor spaces and summer recipes. My oh my, I could stare at these all day...

I long for the day when I have my own home with a cute backyard to entertain family and friends. In my daydreams are luscious plants climbing a trellis, beautiful garden roses, peonies, a fire pit or outdoor pizza oven, some pretty stones for the patio, wrought iron and beige furniture, and just maybe a really awesome infinity pool. A girl can dream! What's on your backyard wish list? Any of the above would do :)

Here are some links for your weekend!

  7. I am in full summer dreaming mode too! Dreaming about a great backyard, I so want a pizza oven (to make that fantastic pizza receipe you linked), goregous outdoor furniture, a fire pit, a cute little table to put my wine glass, and maybe a small fountain. A pool is a must.

  9. LOVE that porch swing! I think we need to have a chat sitting on one. :)

  10. I love these! I just pinned almost all of them. I love sitting outside on summer nights.

  11. Oh my goodness! I've been daydreaming about a tranquil backyard space for our house a lot lately. In my dreams we have a gorgeous stone patio, an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit and a small in-ground pool with lush flower gardens, but of course that's in my dreams!

  12. Aw thanks for the shoutout, Friend!!
