Our backyard oasis begins! At least that’s what Blue thinks.
Our little five month old golden retriever can’t get enough of being outside. For the first several months we had her, we didn’t have a fence. Literally every time we took her out to go potty (which is A LOT with a puppy), we had to put her on a leash and go out with her.

Luckily, in late January, we had a fence installed.

A few weeks after we installed the fence and began enjoying the blissful life of dog parents and home owners with a little more privacy, we had gutters installed.
We learned while house hunting that a lot of homes in the area do not have gutters. This was super weird to me. As someone who basically grew up in the pacific northwest, as well as someone who has a lot of experience with southern rain storms, the fact that our house had no system to divert water away from the foundation of the home (that rests on sand, might I add) was insane to me.
I am happy to report that these first time home owners continue to fall in love with our home a little more every day. Especially now that our yard is fully fenced and now that we can rest easy every time it rains.
Until next time,
