Life in the average city is routinely fast-paced and hectic. It doesn’t allow one to stop and breathe in the fresh air and to enjoy the surrounding beauty as one can do outdoors in the open country.
For the person who lives in the city, the idea of a great outdoors can be a remote concept. For someone who has never ventured beyond the confines of their neighborhood, the wide-open spaces are a distant place---full of mystery and intrigue.
In the middle of a large metropolitan area, it is often difficult to see the sky---or at least see the vastness of the sky that you can see from an open field out West. Even better yet is taking in the expanse of the sky from a mountain peak in the great Rocky Mountains.
Nature is Outdoors.
For the person who has never experienced the ambiance of nature in its purest form, the sounds of trickling streams, chirping birds, and rustling leaves are unknown. And having never heard the nighttime howls of the coyote or wolf is a missed experience. It can be life-changing just knowing one of those critters are close enough to be heard---and an experience not soon forgotten.
Watching an open country sunrise is unsurpassed and the western sunset, bursting with hues of blue and orange, is absolutely mesmerizing. Lying in the meadow underneath a nighttime sky filled with stars so clear and bright---close enough that you feel as though you can reach out and touch them---is heavenly.
And if you have never chased fireflies on a summer’s eve, you’ve missed one of the greatest joys of childhood.
Life outdoors is a treasure given only to those who take the time to enjoy it.
The same yet very different.
Though day-to-day living and working are quite the same in both the city and the country, the overall lifestyles are very different. Those who live outside the city tend to appreciate the little things in life a little more readily, and they certainly value their time outdoors much more so.
Decorate your outdoors with love.
As simplistic as it all sounds, life outdoors is a great opportunity for one to decorate and provide many comforts that enhance the experience.
Some of life’s greatest pleasures happen outdoors. Events like picnics and barbeques take place in the back yard, next to a mountain stream, or at the lake. Accessorizing your picnic basket and table is a top priority for any outdoor enthusiast.
Parades, outdoor concerts, and fireworks displays all have their necessities as well. A comfortable seat, a nice throw to knock off the evening chill, and of course, providing refreshments always make these events much more enjoyable.
So, remember, decorating and accessorizing is not limited to the indoor living room or kitchen. The entire world outside is available and ready for you to decorate and enjoy.
