I feel so blessed to live in this country. This July 1st, is Canada's 147th birthday and families celebrate with outdoor parties, picnics, fireworks and barbeques. Whether you celebrate in a big way or small. take time to appreciate how lucky we are.
All of this outdoor activity also reminds me why I love summer. Although it can be short, summer does give us the opportunity for outdoor living. I love to sit out and enjoy the garden and weather whenever possible.
Of course this leads to outdoor decorating, which is right up my alley. Here are some of my favorite inspirations for outdoor spaces...
