A Day of Rest and So Relaxed - Outdoor Lounge Chair

It is so nice to be able to take relaxation outdoors again as the weather gets warmer and the sun is out more often. These chairs by Carter Fabrications are perfect for that outdoor escape to relaxation! I can see myself with a book and sipping on ice cold lemonade (yes, with an awesome lime green straw), lounging in one of these chairs. Hmmm... sounds so relaxing....

A Day of Rest and So Relaxed - Cedar Garden Bench

Cedar Planter Bench by  Terracottage Woods

Take a walk with me in the garden and 
rest upon this bench.
Soak in those golden rays of sunshine
with your eyes gently closed.
Let the worries of yesterday float away into the clouds;
for now let it be just you and I.

On the Homefront with: camillam

When dad or mom deploys, it is a difficult to go through the nights without the hugs. I know, I have been there. What often brings a child comfort in those times is something that they can hold onto, something that is cozy and warm, that reminds them of mom or dad. These turtles by camillam are a great find! They come in a variety of different uniform styles and are adorable too!
