People joke there’s only two seasons in Chicago…Winter and construction. Living in the Midwest we soak up every second of the sacred summer months. We eat every single meal outside and utilize the outdoors as much as possible. If you follow us on Instagram and watch my Instastories you’ll see us outside even more with our new play set. I love taking the kids to the park so we held off on getting a playset for so long and now I regret it. It has been a godsent to help buy time to make dinner, or for Jim and I to enjoy and uninterrupted adult conversation after dinner.
It’s currently on sale for $500 and you can shop it here….seriously the best money spent this summer, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Our backyard has become our family room we spend so much time outdoors. Just like inside, I’m always thinking of ways to update the space whether is be with landscaping, lighting, furniture or decor. No need to stress yourself out and try to do it all at once. We’ve been in our home for coming up four years now, and each summer we’ll do alittle more. This is the best time of year to shop outdoor as everything starts to go on sale. In fact, Wayfair is having a Black Friday SALE (up to 70% OFF items) in July including outdoor furniture. Below I’ve rounded up a few things we own and I’ve also had my eye on. If you hop over to Wayfair.com you can see recommendations on the site!
