a backyard fire pit

Living in Southern California,
we usually have beautiful warm days,
but our nights are always cool.  

So, it's almost an essential
to have an outdoor heat lamp
or fire element for outdoor entertaining.  

Fire pits are becoming
more and more popular
and are a perfect gathering spot 
for friends and family.
Here are a few of my favorites....

Here's our new fire pit....

We had it built between our 
dining area 
and pool lounging area.  

The ceramic fish is vintage from Mexico 
and the pillows are from Pottery Barn. 

This is now the perfect spot for 
family gatherings 
and roasting marshmallows!

balboa island parade

A super fun Balboa Island tradition filled with dogs,
decorated bikes and golf carts, floats, vintage cars,
a marching band, cheer leaders and much more!

Come for the parade and after party 
featuring live music and 
dancing in the street at the fire station.

Bring beach chairs and enjoy a day of FUN!
