I have never been the kind of girl that needs a lot of pink in her life. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against pink. I love the occasion pink accessory. In fact, I have a pink pillow on my couch as I sit here and type. But never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have the most feminine, the most girly, the most “PINK” little girl on earth.

She and her husband had made major progress on the backyard already. They installed an amazing pool and built in seating that looked like it was straight from Greece. They had a HUGE outdoor kitchen with fourteen feet of counter space done. It is halfway to being a tropical paradise for sure! Continue reading “Backyard Paradise Moodboard”
