It’s party time! Most of the backyard is put together. I really love how it’s coming together. Minor tweaks here and there but it’s feels happy and peaceful and that was the goal.
The hammock style was not my original idea. I wanted to find one similar to the hammocks in Tulum, which I found, but realized it might be more practical to go with something we can grab and take camping. While at REI I found this one by ENO. It certainly serves the dual purpose.
The table I found on Craigslist. Actually, I found a guy who makes the tables on craigslist then contacted him through Facebook. He made it over the weekend and we picked it up on a Monday. I stained, and discovered that I am a terrible stainer, but I do love the table. It has 2 ice buckets built into the middle with covers on them when they are not in use.
Tomorrow we are having new friends over for a little Mediterranean BBQ. I’ll definitely share some recipes for that later this week.
