Photos Belong to the EverDay diary
While back home visiting my parents I enjoyed countless hours outside, especially relaxing with the boys. The main complaint I have with apartment living is the lack of outdoor space, especially outdoor space that belongs to you, to do with what you want. When G and I were looking to move a year and a half ago one of my criteron was that I wanted a balcony; but besides planting flowers last year it has gone mainly unused. This week I decided to change all this and created a mini-makeover for our patio, complete with new flowers and chairs. Since then G and I (and the boys) have spent a small portion of our evening sitting outside together, talking, and enjoying the fresh air. The patio doesn't compare to having my own yard but it does help.
