Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - M: That pool looks totally fabulous. I would totally hang out there all the time if I could, and just bring along a book and some snacks!

E: Backyard BBQs or meals are always fun for me. And someday, when I own a house, I’d love to have a place with a feel similar to yours – relaxing and homey.

Tara - I am SUPER envious of your pool and backyard space! One of the drawbacks of living in the city I suppose… when can I come visit both of you? 😉

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - Our new neighborhood has a pool (insert celebration here!) and today was our first day laying out. I got a sunburn (no surprise there), but it was SO worth it to get some reading in with the sun shining and sound of kids playing. Loved it!

Also, I almost got the Kermit-colored chairs but ended up going with brown at the last minute. Still love your color though!

April Books & Wine - Okay, my neighborhood pool looks like you’ll get a disease if you get in the water. So I am so freakin’ jealous over here.


Seriously, you guys have great reading spots!

elena - I love seeing where you both read! My community pool is super fancy but I don’t really go with it because you need an ID and the ID machine is broken every time I try to get one, haha. I love that you both read outside, I need to do that more often. Thanks for sharing.

margie c {the bumble girl} - LOVE the Kermit chairs! and that pool area looks lovely! Unfortunately, I can’t stand the heat and bugs around here, lol! The humidity can be so wicked! I will sit on my deck in the early morning hours, but once that sun starts to peek, I’m in the a/c right next to the window in my cushy rocking chair from Ikea, lol 😉

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Aww… I love this post! My favourite summer reading spot is definitely our patio. We live in a condo with a great outdoor area and, since it rains the majority of the year, we have a very short window of time to enjoy sitting outside. I spent last weekend getting the patio all cleaned up, and now hoping that we’ll have a good stretch of time to enjoy it! Although I need to find some Adirondack chairs to add; there is seriously no type of chair that is more comfortable!!

Estelle, I LOVE your kermit chair!! So cute. And yay for summertime spirits 🙂
