It’s not even over yet, but this winter has been long, cold and dreary most days. I think it’s fair to say that last month most of the country hit record low temps and have snow storms wreaked havoc across the majority of states. Now more than ever, I am craving sandy beaches and long summer days by the shore.
I understand that for so many vacations away are still not an option anytime soon (although I am hopeful that things may change for later this year). Because of that, I continue to find inspiration in making any outdoor space you have available, the perfect at home oasis to “get away” when you need to.
Staycations have been crucial this past year more than they have been in the past. Not having the luxury to travel or enjoy vacation pastimes have been rough, and I really believe in making whatever space you have available the most comfortable and enjoyable as possible…. after all, it’s where we have been spending the majority of our time! Any changes or updates made do not have to break the bank, and a small refresh or budget friendly investment in some new pieces for your patio, balcony, yard or porch can double your living space or maximize the use you get out of it.
I have been scouring Walmart for outdoor pieces and have rounded up some great finds and awesome deals. So as travel and vacations away slowly become an option again, try creating a relaxing retreat right at home…you may find you’ll never want to leave! lol
