We are so close to summer! Floppy hats and flipflops, picnics in the park and jumping a train to the beach. This month on Apartment Therapy, we celebrate the expansion of our living space to the great outdoors, and bring a little of the outdoors inside. As big as a backyard, as small as a window box, we celebrate it all! As always, we want to hear from you! Keep tagging your photos on Flickr with apartmenttherapynursery, and show us how you and your family have integrated having a family into your home. We know that a lot of new members have registered on Apartment Therapy in the last few months, and we look forward to hearing what you all have to say in the comments on each entry - and don't forget to hit up each week's Open Thread for a little casual conversation. As always, thank you for reading, and please keep your comments, suggestions, and tips coming!
