Whether it’s friends and neighbors stopping by-a family gathering-or just hubby and I enjoying a quiet evening-

our porch definitely gets a used a LOT during the summer! 

With everything going on in the INSIDE of our home, I didn’t spend a great deal of time decorating the porch this year, but I did want to make it a cozy space that everyone could enjoy.

So why don’t you grab your beverage of choice, and sit a spell.

And I’ll share a little secret about our porch with you.

Front Porch Swing-Summer

Something quite magical happens when you take a seat on our old porch swing. 

I know that sounds silly. 

But it’s true!

Just lean back and take a deep breath. 

Can you feel the gentle sway of that chippy old swing take all your cares and worries away?

Maybe our swing isn’t your thing-no worries.  There are more cozy places to sit and enjoy a refreshment or snack- and let’s not forget-PLENTY of laughter.

Because this is OUR happy place! 

It’s where we always end up after a very long day. 

To talk.

To think.

To relax.

And to be inspired by all of nature’s beauty.

I hope you will come back again and see more of our summer porch in a later post.

Since we will  be spending the holiday weekend with loved ones- I wanted to wish you all a safe and very HAPPY Fourth of July from our family to yours!

Happy 4th of July 2016

Blessings and hugs,

  1. Enjoyed this – I love coming over to see what you’re up to because it feels like home every time. So awesome and your flag is beautiful -those colors are the BEST! I agree a porch swing is magical just looking at it even before you sit – awesome pillows! I had an aunt in B.C who had a swing, not on her front porch but in the yard and I loved it – so relaxing love visiting in the summer as it took me to dream land. Beautiful Space -Happy July 4th Weekend.
