Everything's Not What It Seems - Our Patio

Isn't our back patio just beautiful!?!?

We often sit out here and have an evening snack...

 or a glass of wine while reading a book.

The view is breathtaking. It seems like we've got it all together, right? Well, think again. Yes, if we look straight ahead, we see beautiful green trees full of singing birds and happy squirrels.  But, if we look down, we see what we have affectionately dubbed our "weed garden."

And if we look behind us toward the house, we see a mish-mash of broken pots, gardening supplies, and toys my kids have outgrown.

It kind of reminds me of the "Facebook cat" I've seen on Pinterest.
