Swayin’ in the Breeze

How many times this summer alone have you heard, in one form or another, “My goodness, it is hot out here!” Countless people across the country seem to be feeling these crazy temperatures of 2013, but not everyone has access to a simple way to beat the heat. What is there’s no water source to swim in nearby? No beach, river, lake, or pool?

Here’s a great alternative: a hammock! What better way to unwind from the hot day then lounging in the shade, swaying between two trees with a good book and an ice-cold drink? I think hammocks are a great addition to any yard, and here are some of my favorites!

    • Haha, I feel your pain Donna! My yard doesn’t have the right trees either, but there’s always those hammocks that hold themselves up… though there’s nothing quite like swinging under a couple of old, gorgeous trees. Thanks for reading!
