Great blog post!

Robyn, I am always so inspired by your projects. I am going to have to find a spot to create a paatio with the pavers and grass.
I adore your back patio Robyn. I especially like this grass in between the pavers, it really looks so fresh and inviting.
I hope you have the most amazing Summer Robyn! I love hopping with you!
