Will Run For Tomato, Black Olive and Artichoke No Cook Pasta Sauce and a Pinterest Pergola

Thanks for the pergola pasta

Three years after finding out that our new home was in violation of every building code under the sun renovations are finally complete!

Okay, so we (well, not really me) still need to hang some light fixtures and put up some new trim but all of the big stuff is done.  No more addition standing on hockey pucks (I kid you not), no more sheds falling into the creek, no more extension cords running through the walls, etc., etc. 

We were kind of getting used to having our contractor around.  It's pretty awesome coming home from work every day to find another project complete: a new deck,a fenced in back yard and my favourite our pergola.

In celebration of finishing our renovations and passing our city inspection we enjoyed some pasta and berry lemon crumble.

Bouviers like pergolas (and eating grass).
