Here in Minnesota we don't get to use our outdoor living areas all year round, so I really savor the summer when we all basically live outside. This easygoing Sag Harbor cottage belonging to designer Steven Gambrel and photographed by Eric Piasecki is pretty much perfect in my book. I love that his outdoor space is furnished like an indoor room with lamps, tables, and chairs as well as big, comfy sofas. Good times are spent here, this I can tell! You can read all about the space over at Garden Design!

This is all getting me super excited for my own home actually. I don't know if you guys remember but a few months ago Chris and I sold our home. We have since found a total dream home (in the suburbs!) and are actually moving this week!!! So funny that it's the same week as our first anniversary. Anyway, the outdoor area and view are our favorite features of the new home. The home overlooks an awesome regional park and lake. As close to the coast as I'm going to get....and I couldn't be more excited!! Here's a sneak peek!

Can't wait to get in and decorate and spend our summer out here enjoying that view!

Lastly I want to thank you all for the super sweet anniversary wishes!! I'm so glad many of you still enjoyed seeing our wedding pics too! You guys really are the best...thank you, thank you!!!
