Come Sit a Spell !


Before we even moved the furniture into the house, we hung the porch swing on the front porch! It was a dream realized for me. Morning coffee, chats with neighbors and a shady break spot when gardening, this is my favorite "room" in our home. Here are some pictures of our front porch over the seasons with more to come soon!

      @Laurali M ~ the mosquitoes might change your mind in summer! : ) But it is a breezy spot and, if you keep moving they aren't bad!
