Feature & Follow {19}

Activity!  Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon...so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot or take a picture.

One of the things I LOVE about living in the south is the 3 hour drive to just about any destination that appeals to me.  Big city shopping - larger than where I am, 3 hours or less north or east.  Beach, 3 hours south.  Aside from really disliking the city I live in, it's a very convenient location.  My absolutely favorite summer time location to read is the beach, specifically Florida beaches on the Gulf.  Nothing compares to it!  I can literally lay on the beach all day (partially covered by an umbrella otherwise I'd turn into a lobster) and read.  It has to be the most peaceful place on earth.  

But let's be honest...I may get the chance to do that twice a year.  So my second favorite place to read and the one that I'm on most often, rain or shine, is right on my couch cuddled up with a blanket (and my sweet kitty of 14.5 years before he passed - see a photo of him as my book stand on the left sidebar).  There was nothing better than spending my days cuddled up with him and a good book.  It's in those moments on the couch now when I miss him most.  

What about you?  When it gets warm do you escape somewhere outside to enjoy your books?
Don't forget to follow via GFC (preferred) or by email and let me know how so I can return the favor!

  1. I miss my kitty too. He died last year and I still think I hear him calling around the house :( You beach idea sound terrible! I hate reading on the beach because my book gets full of sand. Isn't it good that we're all so different! Thanks for a super post. Really enjoyed it. New follower via GFC. You can find em at: http://gwynnethwhite.blogspot.com/

  10. Nice answer. I lived in Florida until a few years ago, but I never really went outside much, the heat is not my friend. My favorite place is my recliner next to the window. :D

  12. Great choices. I am from Monterey, CA and I loved reading on the beach in Carmel. Been home many times last year but all times crappy weather was not able to read on the beach. Your couch looks so cozy.
