A dream backyard

We have a sweet tiny patio at our apartment with two comfy chairs and a cute Weber Q, and I love it, but sometimes I yearn for a backyard. Sprawling, lush and comfortable, I dream about our friends and family just popping in and enjoying a meal and time together. In my dream world, this is where we could all meet...

on the deck, overlooking the water...

in the backyard, surrounded by trees and with soft green grass underfoot. If you've never felt the difference between icky southern grass and soft, fine grass, you have to experience it...

steaks or burgers fresh from the grill...

and I'll never turn down a view like this:

and for Aaron, who dreams of this. I can see us here:

enough room to relax with those you love the most. That's what's most important.

I love each of these. If there's one cohesive style, I hope someone will point it out to me.Where do you want to unwind at the end of a day or enjoy a cup of coffee when the sun is still sleepy?
