I’ve been complaining and snapping at everyone who I hear going “yayyyy fall”, I probably gave you a look like this:
But, whatever, it’s here OKKKKK. I do have a confession to make though, I am currently sitting outside and it’s a cool 68 degrees. I also turned off the AC, which I don’t do unless I’m forced to, or come home to open windows. I do enjoy the outdoors better in the Fall. OK I SAID IT (that’s only if there’s no pool).
So to celebrate my confession I have dug into my Pinterest for some pretty backyards, then I have a task for all of you.
This is just heaven. Those wooden chairs around the fire pit. I love the stone circle, it separates it from the rest of the backyard and makes it a designated
s’mores conversational drinking sitting area. There’s nothing fancy, it’s just perfect to sit there with hoodies on.
I love this, the string lights make it look magical. It’s in a tiny little nook so you don’t need a sprawling backyard to make this happen. The fire pit is nothing fancy, and the chairs can be purchased at home depot, again, not too fancy, but still magic.
This one has been in my mind for awhile. These chairs are a great pop of color, and not summery either. A perfect autumn red. I’d replace them with Adirondack chairs, to feel grander. Yeah, ok, so I don’t live on a lake, but this is great even without the gorgeous body of water in the background. The fire pit is made of stone, and I like the rustic look. I’m sure my hub and brother can whip it up in under 34 hours. The stumps around are GREAT for setting drinks and s’more supplies (great idea)!
Ok, so now that I admitted maybe I don’t hate fall, I need everyone to help me with something. What do each of these backyards have in common….. hmmmm…… yup. Fire pit. I want a gosh darn fire pit. Nothing fancy (I’d take the bottom image with a store bought fire pit, I’ve been hinting at that for approximately 3 months) but that didn’t happen. So now I need all of you to comment, like, or just straight up text my husband and tell him how awesome our backyard be with a fire pit.
