The Backyard Oasis

Backyard Oasis

It’s that time of year when we get to, finally, spend some time outdoors again! Our deck season is so short here, we really need to make the very most of it. I searched for deck inspiration on Pinterest, and chose a few images as my Backyard Oasis inspiration.

The reason I chose this one from hundreds of deck images online, is because of the fire pit.

While we don’t have a large space for our backyard deck, we added a fire table to our outdoor living space last summer and our backyard fun has been elevated to a whole new level.

Being able to roast marshmallows in the backyard almost every sunny evening has been amazing for connection time as a family for us. As my girls have gotten older, we rely on family dinners to communicate and connect with them. It’s the one time we all share and ask one another about our day. Just last week, we roasted our first marshmallows of the season outside in the backyard, and my daughters and I ended up talking fireside for two hours!

When you have a 13-year-old, you absolutely rejoice when they want to hang out with you for two hours!

Below are my picks for decks to enjoy your family time on this Summer. Make the most of it – really go for it when decorating your Backyard Oasis!
