Sad Sweetie!

Well, this morning it was so nice outside that I decided I would go to visit our friends at Starbuck's and pick up our coffee drinks and pastries for breakfast. I had just gotten home and was one the phone with my friend and was going to go out and enjoy the coffee on the deck under the canopy that my mom and I put up earlier this summer! I loved that thing! It was so nice and shady and was like adding on another room to your house. We got really comfy furniture to go under it and, as all my friends and family can attest to, I couldn't have been more tickled about it.

So, coffee and pumpkin loaf in hand, I open the blinds on the sliding glass window and was shocked to see that we no longer had a canopy! It appeared as though it had just vanished! I hung up with Katie and called Matt over to look at this shocking sight. We went outside and, sure enough, it was laying out in the yard in a mangled mess. Matt and I were going to bolt it down to the deck this weekend as we have been getting a lot of wind lately. I am so sad about it! It was my own little hid away! So, sorry Mom, for all the time and work you donated to help me assemble my canopy! I am sure you will be as sad as I am. Rest assured we WILL be getting another one next summer!

Oh! That is soooo disappointing! At least you got a little use out of it this year. We live in a VERY windy area and we aren't able to even think about something like that...darn it!

I am so sorry to hear about your canopy. We have one on our back porch and I know how time consuming they are to assemble. Maybe you can get one on sale, now that it is almost Fall, and put it up next Spring!!!
