2019: The Year of Fun!

As I set my business and personal goals for this coming year, I decided to declare 2019 The Year of Fun! My goal is to make everything I do fun! Did the word "impossible" pop into your head? Or did you immediately say "Yes! I'm all in!" I've had both reactions from my friends when I've shared my declaration with them.

For me, there are many forms of fun: from the big fun of gathering friends together for a celebration, to the small, quiet fun of watching birds eat at the birdfeeder.

Since The Year of Fun began, I've had to tackle some less-than-fun chores, like cleaning out the 2018 papers from my file cabinet. I realized I was going to do something different to make it fun! So, I put on some funky dance music from my younger years and sang like no one was listening (and, luckily, they weren't!) and the time flew by.

Fun is definitely a mindset: an awareness to create it when possible, and an appreciation of it when it shows up. 

I am so lucky to do what I love for my career. My favorite part of my business is the people I've met and worked with — I've had some of the best clients! I have so much fun helping them envision how to change their outdoor spaces into wonderful places where they and their families will have all types of fun, be it the big events or small moments. If you don't love your outdoor spaces, let's change it in 2019 — you deserve to have fun too!

Let the Fun Begin!

If one of you are ready to update your outdoor spaces this spring, now is the time to start planning! If you have an extensive wish list, or have no ideas what to do, I will work with you to create a customized Master Plan for your outdoor spaces that you will love for years to come.

Spaces for everyone!

The owners of this property are a fun, active family that loves to entertain! Their house had the back patio when they called me. What they didn't have on their sloped lot was a flat play lawn for their kids, or easy access to the back patio from the rest of the property. They also wanted a pedestrian entrance along the street edge, privacy screening from the adjoining properties, decorative plantings at the front of the house, and retention of the large evergreen tree that is along the driveway. Above is one of the 3 concepts I created for them.
