This year, in the spirit of the "learn fearlessly" part of my life mission, I've been super excited to learn more about flowers and work a bit on some landscaping on the side of our house, as well as over our deck. First, I tackled the hanging baskets. I knew that I wanted perennials, since I wanted them to come back without having to re-plant them every year. I found some pretty geranium perennials, and went for it. Transporting them into my hanging baskets wasn't hard, and I already love the way they dress up our deck.

Every good deck need some awesome lighting that won't break the bank. We love the globe lights (pictured above) that we bought right when we got married. Two years in and still going strong (both us and the bulbs, people)! You can find some super reasonable lights at Target right now! For the space above our bar set, we found this nifty candle globe on sale at Home Depot. Finally, I've got some cute Mason jars with sand that I grabbed at CVS for cheap- still figuring out where to put them. All in all, I love our space and having people fill it!
