Tomato & Basil RITZwishes - “Stack It Up” with RITZwiches AD

Brian and I finally made some plans on what we want to do in our backyard. Although we only have plans for half of the yard, at least it’s a start, right? We’ve lived in our current home since 2013 and other than putting in a pool, we’ve been at a loss as what to do with the rest of the yard …. so it’s sat as an empty dirt lot for almost 3 years!

We hired our gardener to put in a pathway from our back patio to the pool (we’ve been walking through dirt!!), put a short wall around our pool equipment, make an outdoor seating area for a table and chairs, and to fill in that half of the yard with small rocks.

It already has made a huge difference in how that half of the yard looks and I can’t wait to have the seating area put in so we can start enjoying more time outside! Brian and I are still discussing what we want to do with the other half of the yard, but it feels good knowing we have made some progress! Finally!!

We’re also already planning on inviting some friends and family over for a BBQ and pool party to break-in the new features in the backyard. Of course, any get-together means food!! One of my favorite parts, besides the company – obviously!  You can bet these Tomato & Basil RITZwiches will be on the menu!
