OMG We Bought A House! Episode 12: Anniversary Al Fresco!

It's our 7 year anniversary (woah) and we decided the best way to celebrate would be in our own backyard! But where to eat? Under the pergola, of course, which I have been itching to get spruced! All it took was some elbow grease aka a power washer and pretty decor by way of an outdoor rug, potted plants, outdoor curtains, a table and chairs, globe string lights, hurricane lanterns, Buddha fountain, homemade sangria (recipe below) and a DIY outdoor fabric table runner to make our own little outdoor sanctuary! What do you think?
