Dreaming of a Summer Escape in My Own Backyard

Who doesn't want a magical and unique outdoor space? A place were you can gather with friends and family to make memories and have a whole lot of fun doing it.

To be honest, I'm a bit jealous of folks with these massive outdoor spaces and big backyards. Sadly, right now, I don't have that. Someday I'd love to have a bigger chunk of land with several acres where I  have a barn, plant a massive garden, plant a field of wild flowers... you get it.

Since that won't be happening anytime soon, I will just continue to dream and incorporation some unique elements into my space to create my own little backyard escape.

Here's what I found...

I've been dying to add a water feature to my space! Loving this one.

I love the idea of bring the indoors outside. How cute is this setup!?

You know me, I love a splash of color. That yellow dutch door is too perfect!

An arbor of trees with a chandlier and string lights!? I'm in heaven!

And this is probably one of my favorite yards from the fab blog The Polished Pebble. Those ginormous trees are like a ceiling for this outdoor oasis.

And the details are just magical.

I just love dreaming and planning of all these beautiful things. Don't you?
