I’ve spent many a summer day lounging in a handmade hammock my dad brought me from Colombia. While I love the colors and pattern of my hammock, I’m not a fan of having it fold in on me, encasing me in a cocoon and making reading impossible! Somebody out there in design land shared my frustration when they created the Headdemock Hammock by Fatboy. Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. That’s a full-grown woman and two kids hanging out (and reading!). Plus, there’s plenty of room to add a husband and a Great Dane.

    My favorite way to spend summer is to enjoy my children for two wonderful, fun-filled months! The thought of not having to work until the third week in August is utter bliss.

    Best part of summer is sitting on the patio at night with an ice cold beer, a slight breeze blowing, looking up at the stars, and listening to the sounds of summer. The chirp of the crickets, the buzzing cicadas, the bull-frogs in the pond…and watching the flickering glow of fireflies. Which is what I am doing right now :)

    I love to have my 8 year old Grandson come and spend weekends with me so we can spend our time together in the pool at my apt. complex. If I had a Hammock like this we would lay in it and read or chat

    I've been asking for a hammock since Mother's Day! I desperately NEED this hammock! I could spend many, many hours outside with my 2 young boys on this super comfy looking hammock.

    Watching HGTV in the AC. Unless it's super nice, then I'm outside enjoying the flower gardens and playing with my dogs.

    My favorite way to spend a summer day is sitting in my lounge chair on the shores of Lake Superior or walking the shores looking for pretty rocks. My sisters find agates, I find pretty rocks. I especially like it when it is cool enough for a sweatshirt.
