Summer Ramblings and Party Time

What can I say about the beauty of summer? The warmth on your skin and then a sudden splash into a refreshing pool, lemonade, sunscreen and well....relaxation. Whether you're off to a great vacation spot or your home is your place of rest and fun, we all relish the time under blue skies and warm sun. \

I love eating outside on my patio under our red umbrella.  There's something special when you have a group of people you love and you share a meal, a glass of wine, and that icey desert. After dinner, sitting around sipping on your favorite beverage and enjoying great conversation; doesn't get much better than that!

Below are some pictures of outdoor parties you can be inspired by.  Some of the ideas are so simple, yet elegant.

Okay, the tables below lit up are gorgeous and magical. I know I'll try this sometime soon.

Not so sure, but the pic below could well be my favorite.  I'm such a romantic!

This next one inspires me to make some beautiful concoctions to sip.

Every now and then I need to be inspired to sort of change up my space.  Since I just moved to my present abode not too long ago, I keep changing, trying new things...these pics below are some of my favorite inspirations. Enjoy and be inspired.

So, that's about it for now.  I do wish my camera didn't break, but soon I'll get a new one and post pics of what I've done to my place.  In the meantime..take care and love your space...let it love you.....
