Patios, Entryways and Courtyards

Happy Wednesday everyone! It is a cold, rainy day here today. So my post will definitely be uplifting and sunny!

A few weeks ago my two Sisters and I took a trip to Arizona. Just the three of us for seven days! No clocks, no schedules, no stress no pressure! It was wonderful. We did a lot of lounging right here around my Sister’s beautiful pool.

We also toured some amazing model homes while we were there. I wanted to share some photos I took of the patios, entryways and courtyards. We toured 16 homes, what a fun day! Here is a peek!

Here we are just enjoying some R&R by the pool! A rare week spent together! Moments and memories to treasure! I love my Sisters, I am so blessed to have them in my life! Jen (left) Me (middle) Brenda (right)


Well, it may be rainy outside my window but I just got a little dose of sun looking at these pictures again! I hope you all enjoyed my little tour!

If it is raining where you are too. Get out that pencil and notebook and start planning your gardens (if you haven’t already). And if it is sunny and beautiful where you are today, get out there and enjoy digging in the dirt! I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Until next time, take care.



  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time with your sisters. How cool would that have been! We have been faced with rain and wind at our place for days now. Hopefully it will be nice this weekend.
    Enjoy the rest of your week.

  2. There is nothing better than spending time with sisters!!

    have a great one, Janie

  3. Great pics, Sarah! I have an aunt in Chandler, AZ and it's always fun to see how outdoor gardens and patios look there -- so different from here in New England.

    Are you getting ready to plant a garden this year? That's something I miss from our first house ... all of the sun and big gardens. Our lot here is super shady and it's just not conducive for successful gardening. Thank goodness for the farmers' market!

    Stay dry!

  4. Your Arizona trip sounds wonderful - love all the photo's. It's a cloudy day here in NH, but tomorrow promises to be sunny and gorgeous. TFS.

  5. Love looking at your pictures~ they are amazing! Glad you had a chance to get away and spend time with your sisters, how nice!!

  6. All to have a stone arch into my garden like this one. For now I will dream about it. Beautiful pic's. Thanks for sharing!

  7. So glad you had a lot of fun with your sisters..The photos are beautiful..I am sitting here dreaming of sun while it is so dark and gloomy out..LOL..Have a great rest of the day..

  8. Sisters are great! I have 2 myself! It doesn't hurt when one of them has such a beautiful pool, either! Glad you all had the chance to get together and have a great time.

  9. How nice to spend time with your sisters. I love my sisters, too!

  11. What nice full of color and warmth..glad you enjoyed your time with your sisters...I have 3 sisters and when we get together we too have a good time....I am sure you had a lot of R & R...that does the body and soul some good. Thanks for sharing.
