Spring has officially sprung across the country and with warmer temperatures rolling in, the desire to work outside increases. It doesn't matter if you have a balcony, desk, backyard or just a local park to work from — the question is do you? Is it too much hassle or time well spent to breathe a little fresh air once in awhile?

Even though we love the idea of working outside, when it comes right down to it, we've never really had a space that's shady enough to pull it off. The art of being able to see your monitor when the sun is out is one well crafted. We've tried in the past, but the whole thing usually ends in a closed laptop and a game of fetch with the dog.

Since we don't commute or carry our great with us all the time, stopping off at a local park to take in the scenery usually involves us making fools of ourselves on the merry-go-round, not checking Facebook or updating our Google Calendars.

How about you? Are you a fan of working outside, or would you rather get it done and truly enjoy the few moments you have to spend outdoors?
