The first days of spring have me headed outdoors and smiling! Even with our foggy coastal weather, I love getting outside. The new blooms and birds in my garden have me thinking up ways to spend more and more time outdoors. Now is the perfect time for easy outdoor entertaining.

My backyard is in desperate need of some serious gardening. On a positive note, our new grass seed sprouted beautifully and we had our olive trees trimmed. However we still need to work on planting in our raised beds. I also have string lights that need to be hung. These fun projects will keep us busy and outdoors for the next few weeks anticipating summer weather.

In the meantime we hosted a fun easy get-together with friends last weekend. It was a wine and cheese tasting party. The vibe was relaxing and the party had a definite laidback approach. 

I filled the tables with fresh flowers since my yard isn't blooming yet.

The food and wine was all set up ahead of time, so I was able to enjoy the party too.
