What are your favorite activities for your patio or balcony? {Giveaway}

I know I've mentioned it before...but I love the outdoors! We are so lucky to live in a place where we can spend quality time outside. California living at it's best is enjoying meals or watching colorful evening sunsets while relaxing on the patio. I feel like there isn't anything I can't do in my outdoor living space!

As summer comes to an end, I am already getting a bit nostalgic for all the fun we've had the last few months. The nearly perfect weather (though a little hot recently), means casual parties with friends, reading my favorite book, watching A learn to ride a bike, hanging out with the grandparents, playing in the pool and even using the ipad to learn astronomy...all just a step outside.

As the weather cools a bit, I'm still looking forward to making more memories in my now awesome yard (thanks to my wonderful husband!). Though the leaves don't change here, there is a pumpkin farm nearby and I can't wait to decorate the patio with jack o'lanterns. Since my little guy is a huge fan of the outdoors, I know many an hour will be spent making memories on the patio of our little home.
