One of my goals this month was to enjoy more relax time. Unfortunately, I sometimes feel with the busyness of life it is hard to find time to relax for any extended periods of time. How about you? I really do enjoy spending time outdoors and long for any spare minutes I can grab to sit on my patio with a glass of lemonade and a good book. The more appealing the area is, the more likely I am to crave it and ultimately enjoy it.
I have several spots I enjoy spending time or entertaining in during the warmer months. I recently shared my front porch and screened in porches with you. Both of these got a freshening up for the season.
Other outdoor areas we enjoy are our patio/ pergola and fire pit. We had a major overall of our back yard 3 years ago and have never regreted the time or money spent to add this outdoor area. It's the perfect spot for a family dinner or smore's over the fire pit with neighbors and friends.
Some of our best family memories are spent in these spaces.
And my favorite outdoor spot is just inside the wooded area of our lot. I hung a hammock from two trees. I love looking up and taking in a view of the sunlight filtering through the trees and looking out at the kids playing. This is a peaceful spot as long as my kids aren't seeing how high they can swing me before I fall off 🙂
What are your favorite outdoor spots? I'd love to see how you spend your life outdoors.
To life feeling like home!
