what i'm looking forward to about my trip home pt 3

i figured i'd give you a break of all the food i'm looking forward to at home (for now) and tell you that i'm excited for .. my backyard!

there is nothing extremely special about my backyard. we don't have a fancy back porch or a big in-ground swimming pool (as much as i bugged my parents for one when i was little). but my parents have done an excellent job of turning our normal sized backyard into a lovely little outdoor getaway.

since the last time i was home was december/janurary, i wasnt able to fully appreciate everything i love about my backyard. but since i will be visiting in the summer time i am excited to spend a lot of time out there.

when the weather turns nice, my parents usually push our kitchen table against the wall to make more room in the kitchen, and start eating every meal outside.

there is just something to be said for enjoying a meal outside in the fresh air. my favorite times are early in the morning (you know, if i choose to get up early) while i'm drinking a nice cup of coffee, and after i've finished eating dinner just relaxing with a nice cold beverage. 

and when it's not a meal time, i enjoy hanging out in that great hammock with a good book, which i plan on doing a lot of when i'm home.

is there anything specific that you guys love about your homes?

Oh my, you have just the coolest story! I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog! And hammocks are my favorite thing ever. I am moving to a house (out of an apartment) in a few weeks and getting a hammock is first on my list!!
Can't wait to read more of your neat adventures!
