Life, Lived Better – Outdoors
July 2023 Newsletter
Life is definitely moving at a rapid rate for us this time of year.
Since the sun finally decided to come out, so have you. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to furnish your outdoor areas for the season of “outdoor entertaining.” Large and small; big, bold, or subtle & tranquil, we have seen how many of you are designing your outdoor space and making it your own. We are more than happy to help you in your endeavors.
From La Quinta to Fallbrook, from Balboa Island to Lake Arrowhead, and every enclave in between and beyond, our family has been traveling and delivering your furniture with our famous “white glove” delivery service. Yes, you may have even seen the third generation on some of our deliveries or assembling furniture on our showroom floors. At the ripe old age of 12, we are happy that Julian (my son) has helped fill in where needed to keep the wheels turning in our family-owned business.
Remember to have fun out there and enjoy your kids, family, and friends this time of year! Be neighborly, have a BBQ, or just sit and relax on a peaceful evening with a book. The time is now to create those precious moments outdoors. And if you have any questions or need suggestions, we are always available to help:

It’s a Dog’s Life…really
Send us a photo of your dog enjoying your backyard/outdoor space or on an adventure outdoors! You can send via email or text pictures to 951-818-5470. If your photo is chosen, we will send your pup some treats!
This is from Jennifer & Kevin. Their beautiful pup, Jackson, still gets into mischief. But all that mayhem is worth it, right? Thanks, guys, for the pic, and we’ll be sending your pup some treats soon!

Quote for the Month:
“Conscience is what makes a boy tell his mother before his sister does.” — Evan Esar
I have an older sister; this quote rings true.
If you haven’t noticed, this month’s newsletter came a little later than normal. My apologies. The time has gotten away from me with summer: work, family, friends, enjoying the outdoors…repeat. Life of a middle-aged GenX guy, who would’ve thought?
I hope you do enjoy this month’s newsletter and the interesting (to me) articles within. But as someone once said, “I am not an island, it is not all about me!” So, we do welcome and look forward to 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 email@example.com
Whether at home or out in the wild, take it all in. Remember that life is truly lived better outdoors.
