When I was little, I used to love going into the backyard, weaving my way around the outdoor furniture, and heading straight towards the pergola where the wind chime hung. I’d sit there for hours, reading books and just enjoying the vibes.

Now I’m an adult, I still appreciate the beauty of chilling outside, with the twinkly sound of wind chimes. They’re just so relaxing, and you don’t have to do anything with them — simply hang them up and let nature play its tune. Oh, and they look so darn adorable.
