I'm a true Texas girl. My favorite time of year is Easter through Halloween when the weather is warm and the skies are sunny. Shorts and flip-flops are my preferred uniform. Brad Paisley's song lyric," she prefers a campfire to candlelight" sums it up pretty well for me. So, over spring break we built this patio for the firepit. Really Wendy did most of the patio. She's a genius when it comes to that sort of thing--knowing that we'll need 2 yards of dirt, and 2 tons of flagstone--that's her thing totally. But, I was there for the cheerleading, morale support and the heavy lifting.
