I’ve wanted a hammock inside our home for years. Years. I could never figure out where to hang one, but it was always in my mind every time I moved around furniture. When Corbett and I were in Ecuador we stopped by a market for about 20 minutes. There were hammocks – beautiful, colorful hammocks – everywhere. Corbett really wanted to go shop for gifts for his siblings. I wanted to skip the gifts in buy myself a hammock. Just being honest! Well…we left Ecuador with a bunch of gifts and no hammock.
Once I home I decided I’d just keep my eye for the perfect hammock. I moved out a big round chair from our living room, so I thought I could try to fit a hammock in the corner. One night I spotted a green one on Pinterest, traced it back to Anthro and now there is a hammock in my living room.
Once the hammock arrived, I snapped a few photos to text my dad with the message, “Want to come help me figure out how to hang this?” The next day the hammock was hanging and it hasn’t been empty since. It is by far the most
fought over popular place in the living room.
My friend told Corbett that he needed a bigger cereal bowl….and bought him this one.For those wondering about how we hung it…just a couple hook screws attached to the wall studs.
I didn’t think any rules were going to be needed, but…boys. No flipping in it. No twisting someone up so tight they can’t get out. No using your feet to push against the window to get the biggest swing. Please, for the love of your mother, just use it for chillin’ out, maxin’ and relaxin’.
