There are several parts of my house that fall somewhere in the range of "not so nice" to "extra hideous." Take for example our deck, which we have nicknamed the Dr. Seuss deck, because there are no right angles. It's rotting, peeling, and heaving out of the ground, and generally trying to maim anyone who dares cross it. The thing is so slanted that if we set up a kiddie pool the water slopes to zero depth. But sometimes you gotta just pause and appreciate how beautiful even a decaying, decrepit, ornery deck can be when a flowering vine winds its way through a staircase railing. #livethelittlethings 💜😉 p.s. The railing on the other side of these stairs fell off and is laying on the grass. 😂 p.p.s. Goes to show not everything is as perfect as Instagram makes it out to be! 😜
