How To Turn Your Backyard Into Your Private Getaway

My honeymoon was the vacation of a lifetime. It’s been a wild summer, so having that time to relax and go on adventures was both incredible and inspiring. I have so many new ideas that came from just allowing my mind to wander. And, while I am so excited to jump back into everything, I also can’t let myself forget the importance of taking it easy every now and then. I think all of us can get caught up in the craziness of day-to-day life, but sometimes it seems impossible to take time off.

If you can’t get away, try bringing the vacation to you by transforming an area of your house into your own personal oasis. With all the awesome outdoor furniture and decor these days, you can easily turn your backyard into an unrecognizable dream land. Invite some friends over to sit around the fire pit or just chill with a glass of wine or a good book at the end of the day. Spend some time whenever you can to just let yourself chill and reflect on all the good things you have in your life!

It might not be exactly the same as an oceanside resort, but it’s just right outside your door!

    My family and I have been “stay-cationing” for several years. You have most of the ideas on your list that we use. Lots of seats for our friends and family that happen to stop by, plants that bloom all summer long, and of course a fire pit and candles are a must – especially when Sept and Oct get closer. We use citronella oil on the fire pit to light it and that helps with the bugs as well. But right now in Indiana, we have the hot humid nights and that means only tiki torches full of citronella oil – same outcome either way. Enjoy!

    Cute ideas! I agree that sometimes we need time to relax. When I don’t make time for it, I feel overwhelmed and a little grouchy. It’s amazing what taking a nap, reading or watching some Netflix can do. I’m excited for the fall because cooler weather is my jam. I know I’ll want to spend more time outdoors once the humidity is out of the way. 🙂
