Tips for decorating an outdoor patio space

It was time for my old patio furniture to go and I wasn't really sad about it. When I bought it, I hadn't really considered how we would use the space or really considered comfort. Now that I was starting with a blank slate, I put a lot more thought into my selections. I'd like to share with you a few things to consider when decorating your outdoor spaces.  But first up, here are some before pictures: I was staring off with a really good foundation. Back in the day, this was actually grass wit...

4 Fun Activities to Try with Your Dad

“For thousands of years, father and son have stretched wistful hands across the canyon of time.” -Alan Valentine A man’s thought process is not as of a woman. They do things differently and love differently. They don’t prefer to show affection directly but find ways to convey it. The most considerable evidence of this statement is the relationship between a father and a son. They may pretend to be careful on the outside, but somewhere inside, they feel and sense everything as a woman does. Whe...

Equestrian themed Christmas decor

This pandemic has us trying to extend the amount of time we spend outside, and with Christmas approaching, I really wanted our outdoor space to be festive. I don't usually decorate our back patio for the holidays, but this year it seemed like a great idea since it is covered and still usable for quite awhile longer. Since I live on a horse farm in Kentucky, I felt it appropriate to go with an equestrian theme for this outdoor space. Now you can see where I put the "Jingle Bells" art and horse...
