We had really bad thunderstorms here last night and when I headed to work this morning, it was still rainy and windy outside. When I left work and headed home, I discovered a sad sight.

The patio furniture I bought last July had blown over into the flower beds and the cushions/pllows were gone :(

I parked the car and went walking/running down the street looking for the cushions and found 1 beside a neighbors house, but couldn't find the other one! I wasn't willing to give up though so I kept looking (in the rain) and once I got to the end of the street, I found the other cushion on my neighbor's front porch. I was glad I found it, but another neighbor gave me a really strange look and I felt I had to explain that I did indeed live in this neighborhood.... I'm not a creeper, just want my cushion back!!

I never found those pretty, blue pillows though. I am so sad because they were a birthday gift from my mom. :(

At least I got the cushions back though and I learned a lesson. From now on if a storm is imminent, I will be sure to put my patio furniture in the garage! I did that earlier in the winter, but thought that it would be ok now that it's February. WRONG!

I'm not really sure if this is blog-worthy, but I wanted to complain. Haha.

I love the set you had a on your front porch. Glad you were able to track down your missing cushions! Sucks about your pillow :( Maybe you can add strings on your cushions that attach to your love seat and chairs? That way they stay in place on windy / stormy days? just a thought

Sometimes it feels good to just let it out but I would have been completely bummed too. In the winter all our patio furniture is placed inside just for this reason. Our winters are so unpredictable.

Hope you're doing well! :)

Hahaha I feel like I could add that little disclaimer to the end of too many posts! I'm so sorry you lost the pillows. They were precious! :(

Of course it's blogworthy! :) I"m glad you recovered the cushions. That is a shame about the pillows!! I've lose flags from our flag poles in strong winds. I always wonder where they end up!
