We have been enjoying mostly lovely weather these last three weeks which means more time spent in our backyard. Our apple tree has finally bloomed so we have all kinds of shade in the afternoon and end up only going inside long enough to cook. There's still a little bit of work to do to get our yard feeling summer ready but one new addition has made it a lot prettier already!
The lovely people over at The Makerage, a brand new consortium of artists, engineers, and designers, recently sent over one of their new products. It's a hexagon-shaped, concrete lazy susan and is absolutely perfect for our outdoor patio set. It's just the right size to hold all the condiments for summer cookouts but also works to create a lovely centerpiece and it won't get ruined if it accidentally gets left outside. I'm always a fan of pieces that are both practical and beautiful.
Also, I need to give a shout out to Mel, one of the lovely people behind the company, who also happens to be the girl that introduced Brett and I after English class our freshman year of college. Let's all give Mel a round of applause for that, okay!
Also, let's give Colorado a round for not having many mosquitos! It's not it's best feature but it's definitely in the top five.
Do you enjoy eating outside? Have you done anything to make your outdoor space a little more special this year?
