Outside Spaces #AtoZChallenge

...outside spaces.  Of course, being that I'm so high maintenance, I need outside spaces with some shade, and without bugs. Enter--the screen porch.

When we bought our house five years ago, the screen porch was like the icing, extra fudge toppings, and a million cherries on top.  We love it!  Especially Emmie :)

It's fantastically awesome during thunderstorms.  We move the furniture to the middle as best we can, to avoid getting misted by the wind and rain, and then we sit outside and enjoy the Mother Nature show!

Do you have a favorite outside space?


  1. In good weather, we love our back patio and have lunch and sometimes dinner there. It's small, but cozy, and over looks our yard and garden, as well as neighbors/ trees on both sides, which makes it feel like a small park. Lots of birds, too, twittering and tweeting and chirping. It's very relaxing.

  2. in good weather, we love our patio and will have bbqs and dinners! also have a small fire pit that we can roast marshmallows on. :)

  3. That looks like an amazing place to sit and relax. I don't really have a favourite place to sit and relax in the open space. Certainly not in my apartment.

  5. That's beautiful!
    We have a long porch, without screens, but we love to spend evenings out there. Husband put ceiling fans on the porch like they have in the south! Very nice.
