    I like entertaining good friends outside. Hosting a ladies luncheon al fresco is the best.

    I enjoy filling the pool for my girls and sitting back dipping my toes in the cold water. The girls love to splash me and giggle the entire time. A nice warm, sunny day, cool water and giggling girls…how could it get any better?

    Outdoor living is all about the fresh air. Air is a symbol of spirit, and it wafts, well, just about everywhere, unencumbered. I like unencumbered! From my back deck, I can hear the wind soughing from a block away and it brings power into my face, my lungs and my soul.

    I like to sit on the back deck and watch my kids rough it up with our little dogs. I like it when the grass has just been cut and I can also smell the burgers on the grill. Of course if I have a nice glass of red wine in hand, it makes this scene even better.

    My favorite part of outdoor living is watching the small wildlife that comes into my garden, especially the little lizards. It's especially amusing to see the males puff up at me when I putz around in my garden, getting territorial over whatever plant they happen to be on.
