Fresh new patio!!

We finally finished our side patio! You would think since such a small area it would not have taken us this long to do it! I have to say, one of my most favorite things about Louisiana is the friendliness here. Our wonderful neighbors behind us are like the neighborhood parents of the year! Mr. David has helped me so much when Blake is out of town and I need a ladder, hang something, and even decorate my door-he and wife Ms. Jody are always there to help and usually just offer without me asking. They also have the yard of the neighborhood and love plants, so i asked Ms. Jody if she would come with me to help me pick plants that would go together and I have to admit, I asked her to choose ones that didn't take much maintenance! She was happy to do it and kept me $80 less than the budget Blake gave me!! Blake said he could have kissed her when I told him how much we spent, well saved by bringing her!!! It turned out beautiful! I think we have eaten dinner our there every other night since we finished!
