Our Favorite Outdoors Spot!

Do you have that favorite spot outdoors, at home that you go for as soon as warmer days finally arrive? I'm sure a lot of you do. That spot outdoors where you may hangout after dinner, until bedtime. 

Well here is ours! This spot is at the corner of my yard where we have this outdoors wood burning granite stove and oven that were built in the 40's along with the house which also has a granite exterior. Granite comes from right here in town, Mount Airy, North Carolina. The quarry here is the largest open face granite quarry in the world.

The first warm and sunny day in spring I hurry out there and clean up the stove top, ready for cooking out. Its April and we already have used it a couple of times.  

This is the spot where a lot of family spring/summer gatherings happen. Steaks never tasted better on any other grill, that's for sure! In two weeks the first birthday party will be here on this spot. So will any summer celebrations like 4th of July.

After finishing our meal, kids collect sticks and roast marshmallows for s'mores. Later in the summer, we may also bake a pie in the oven, on the left side of the stove. 

 This is my quiet time, early coffee or afternoon tea spot. Where I sit and look out at the garden and watch the birds come by to eat out of the bird feeder or splash in the bird bath.

What about you? Where is your favorite outdoor hangout spot on a warm and beautiful day?

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

What a gorgeous outdoor space you created, Sonia! I love that outdoor fireplace! My favorite place to hang out during the summer is the back porch which is surrounded by flowerbeds and lush pine trees. This porch is soon to be screened in this summer, which will not only give me another "room" to style...but another little bohemian haven to chill out in. Am so anxious to get it done! lol
