Pool Daze

Late summer storms and back to school next week, have me feeling like summer is over and fall is just around the corner. Looking forward to the the brisk days and changing colours, but not quite ready for summer to come to an end yet…especially this year.

I have to admit I’m feeling a tad nostalgic. This time last year we walked through the front doors of this house and absolutely fell in love! We didn’t set out looking for a house with a backyard pool, BUT we are so glad we did!! While the home itself ticked all our boxes and totally won us over, the amazing backyard really sealed the deal.

Our family absolutely loves the pool! Yes it’s a lot of work (thank you hubby) and yes it’s expensive, but so worth it!! In fact, we spent a week of our holidays right here at home enjoying our own private oasis.

This has to be the cutest pool shed ever! It stores all the pool equipment, chemicals, and water toys, AND it’s so pretty!!

I almost forgot the fire pit! It’s tucked away at the rear of the yard and backs onto a greenbelt and creek. By day it’s a quiet, shady place for a morning coffee, by night the perfect spot for s’mores.

So…what are you doing with these last days of summer?!?  I’ll be squeezing in one more gin & tonic poolside 😎 Thanks for stopping by!
