Summer is a time for me to escape. Escape the everyday demands and pressures that come along with having the kids in school. Dealing with deadlines, homework, projects and kids sporting activities and schedules.
My backyard is a place that we enjoy escaping to. It is not perfect by any means…but there are a few fun areas in my yard that I enjoy relaxing in. We recently had to rebuild our entire deck because it was literally falling apart. Now I am able to sit down with a good book or work on my laptop while enjoying the summertime weather.
We also recently tore out some bushes in our front yard and made a nice sitting area on our front porch. So it is nice to be able to enjoy a summer afternoon thundershower while watching the kids play in the gutter and rain puddles.
Now that I have shared what turns my backyard into my perfect summer oasis, I want to know what you’ve done to transform your backyard into your oasis. One of my lucky readers will win a $25 Sears gift card!
