You don't have to have a pool or a fancy outdoor space to curl up with an iced tea and a great magazine or book. I have a friend who has one chaise lounge on her patio, and it always looks so inviting, just sitting there by itself with a blanket on it. (Do you think she stages it when people come over?) I mean I would have to bring the blanket etc. in or the bugs...... Next time, I have to get a pic. She might think I'm weird, oh well.
Just carve out a little space for yourself this summer. Anything from a chair to a chaise will do.
Enjoy the beautiful images.
