We have concrete!

Isn't it beautiful? This is part of our new patio! Hmm, maybe beauty truly IS in the eye of the beholder.

We've been wanting to do some home improvements for a very long time and are so happy to finally be able to do it! One being extending the back patio and adding an arcadia door to our bedroom which has the view to our pool. Okay... so maybe it's because it will give us easy access to the pool. In either case, the patio is coming along swimmingly ;)

My brother-in-law, Tony, is our contractor and is doing all the work himself. He's doing a fabulous job too. Well, he does have help every once in a while - our 'kids' (4 legged furry kids) help him with the digging and watering.

I'll show you the final pics once completed.

Happy Monday everyone!
