You know what the best part about summer is? The sun staying out longer with us.
It makes me feel happier and more productive to have these long days, like I have more hours in a day. One of these productive moments is getting our outdoor space together. We’ve been getting in the mood to host a few parties soon, but even the best abled-body needs somewhere to sit. At least in the patio area to start because when the sun starts going down, those killer mosquitos starts coming out for a meal or ten, sending us running for the screened in porch.

Summertime might almost be over, but it ain’t over til it gets chilly. I’m not usually one to hold on to summer, but this one just seems shorter this year and I’m not ready yet to admit how much time has passed by. So for the time being, let’s soak in the pool under that hot sun and dine alfresco!
