Operation Outdoor Bedroom
Recently it occurred to me that I wasn’t using my backyard here in Alameda, California to its fullest potential and began implementing an overhaul that I coined, Operation Outdoor Living Room. A gazebo was constructed, curtains hung, an outdoor rug laid, lights installed and finally, furniture placed. The main piece of furniture is an absolutely delightful giant multi-function lounger that my young daughter immediately demanded we camp out on…overnight. So we camped in our new space (which is admittedly very comfortable) and the next day my daughter exclaimed, “Mommy, that was the best night of my life!” We are now calling it, Operation Outdoor Bedroom.
