This week's question is: With warmer weather hopefully on the horizon, where is your favorite outdoor reading spot?

I live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and I have a nice spot out in front of my house, under lots of pines and spruces, to sit back, relax and read! I love sitting out there reading, having the sun on my face, and listening to the wind in the trees. Ah, I'm missing summer! Right now, I have 2 feet of snow on the ground! :)

  1. Oh wow! That sounds nice!! In St. Louis, the "warm weather" usually means hot sticky, humidity type weather with no cool breeze, just hot icky air.

    Spring can have its nice days but they are usually coupled with the tornado weather too. So that's not at all enjoyable either!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. Hi Jessica! I'm not such a fan of hot-n-sticky or tornadoes for that matter! ;) I do have to worry about forest fires here, so I won't complain about the snow.

      Enjoy your weekend!!

    1. Hey Morgan - thanks for stopping by here. Yeah, I do like summer...but I'm enjoying spring here in the mountains. The snow makes for nice skiing! :)

  4. Sounds so nice. I have a Pine tree in my front yard, and I live in California, near the beach, so I love the Pines :) Anyway, sounds like a great place to read.

  5. Sounds great! Like you, I'm in the Rockies, but one state over in Utah. Literally over just the last 2 days, the weather's warmed up considerably and most of our snow (in the valleys anyway) has melted. Hope you experience that soon as well. :D
    Happy Friday! My FF.

    1. The melt has started here in the valleys - I'm up above 8000 ft though. So it'll take a little longer. :) I'm not complaining though...more snow means less chance of wild fires.

      Have a wonderful weekend, Liesel!

  6. Thank you for stopping by! I live near-ish to the rocky mountains, though I only get to see them up close when I travel to Banff.

    1. Thanks for returning the visit! I haven't been to Banff but I love pictures! :) I spend a lot of time in Rocky Mountain National Park, myself.

      Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Two feet of snow! I'm flying out there for the first time in a couple weeks. My dad hasn't mentioned the snow yet. I think he's worried I'll back out. Your reading spot sounds wonderful. I'd fall asleep. Due to the iffy future of GFC I RSS Google followed you. This is my FF.

    1. Hey Robyn! Well, I live up above 8000 ft, so that's why I still have snow. Down in Denver, it's probably dry. ;) There...did that calm you down?!? LOL! My reading spot rocks! I hope you get to make it up to the mountains while you're here.

      Thanks for following me. I followed you back via GFC, Google +, and email. :)

    1. You know it! ;)

      I read indoors for many months of the year. :) Usually with a cat in my lap!

  11. Colorado, wow. I haven't really gotten out West (with the exception of CA), but I would love to visit the Rockies! And wow, I miss seeing snow! We don't get much of that in TN.

    1. I've only been through a tiny portion of TN - on my way to Dulles. But since it does snow here, I spend many hours reading indoors...usually with my cat napping in my lap! :)

      I'm following you back! Happy Reading!

    1. Hiya Caitlin! Thanks for hopping by. I think your library makes for a lovely reading spot as well! Although, on the patio with coffee sounds great! :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. The mountains would be incredible! I don't think I could handle the snow in the winter though. It's pretty but I don't like getting out in it. But the summer sun has it's own issues. Guess I'll stay inside :D Happy Friday!

    1. LOL! Yes, the snow does make for interesting driving sometimes. And I have to drive kiddos to school...but it makes for nice skiing too! The summer sun is great...particularly when sitting under the shade of lots of trees! ;)

      However, I do spend many hours indoors reading. And that's just as nice. As long as we get time to read, right?!? Enjoy your weekend, Traci!

  14. Ahhhh that sounds DIVINE *sigh*! Mind you the snow is as good a reason as any to stay snuggled up indoors with a good book ;) But the are you're describing must be hard to beat in the Summer ♥

    1. Yes, the cats and I enjoy snuggling in front of the fire and reading during the colder months. :) Thanks for stopping by.

  18. That snow is definitely a deterrent for outdoor reading! I'd be snuggly indoors with some hot chocolate. I hope you get your nice summer days under the Spruces and Pines soon to enjoy :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

  19. I'm wanting some warmer weather, too. I live in Central New York, and the amount of snow we get every year is insane. Although this past winter has been mild.

    Anyway, your reading place sounds very relaxing. Thanks for sharing :)
