Life, Lived Better – Outdoors
Hello May – Newsletter
First and foremost, my family and I would like to thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our charitable food drive the biggest and best it has ever been. We sincerely appreciate our many new clients and those familiar with our family-owned store who came in and donated so many pounds of food (we even had to start storing the excess in our warehouse). Our local food bank, Feeding America Inland Empire, and many in our community thank you. We also hope that you are enjoying your new outdoor furniture purchased at a very healthy discount because of your generous contributions. A Win-Win for All!!
The weather is FINALLY warming up after a crazy wet and long winter/spring. We hope you are taking advantage of the biggest room in your house – Your Outdoor Room! Whether entertaining for many or having some “alone time”, we can help you achieve your natural Zen.
Have a great month everyone and don’t forget Mother’s Day on Sunday May, 14th!

Quote for the Month:
May Your Home Always Be Too Small to Hold All of Your Friends – Traditional Irish Blessing
And if it is, thank goodness we live in southern California. Here, our outdoor area is an extension of our “indoor” home. We are lucky enough to consider our “home” to include our backyard, our patio, our pool, our front yard, and all our outdoor areas. You can make it as versatile (actually, more so) as your indoor space. Cook, nap, watch TV, meditate, work from home, or party with your friends; you can do it all outdoors. And we can show you how.
As fellow enthusiasts of the outdoors, we always welcome your comments, suggestions, and ideas. We want this to be a community, so feel free to share and contribute. We might reach out to you for a future collaboration! You can leave a message here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Whether at home or out in the wild, take it all in. Remember that life is truly lived better outdoors.
