Quick Patio Update

So due to all the rain and cold weather in Boston last weekend, we sadly didn't make much progress on our patio. Can I tell you how over the cold I am? I think I'm actually starting to forget what warm weather feels like. Despite the rain, we DID cross off the one thing on our to do list that didn't involve being outside, which was organizing some fun decor for that space. Here's a peek at some of the things that are ready to go out there once it gets a little nicer!
The plants (including our baby tomato and parsley sprouts) have been growing happily in our windows for the last month but are quickly outgrowing their pots and are so so ready to be replanted outside. We also have several new planters we made in pottery class that are ready to be filled!
The outdoor rug we ordered is from Wayfair

An in other exciting news, our outdoor lights are going up this week! We ended up going with these ones from Restoration Hardware. I love the look of the textured glass against the wrought iron and how they kind of match the street lamp posts on Marlborough. It will be so nice to finally have light out there, although josh has mastered grilling in the dark with a battery-powered lantern. For added lighting, we also ordered these pretty globe lights and hung these DIY mason jar sconces.
That's all for now! I'm heading to Atlanta for the rest of the week for the Mom 2.0 blogger conference, where Wayfair is sponsoring a lounge. I don't want to give too much away, but here is a peek at the theme we are going with for this particular space. It took a lot of planning (you can take a look at some of the design elements that are going into it here), but I think it's going to look amazing. I'll be sure to share photos when I get back, but in the meantime you can follow @Wayfair on Instagram if you want to see it all come together!
