Thanks to the current owners for providing us with this photo.
I'm a porch enthusiast. I grew up in a house with a front porch (swing included). All three of the houses we have lived in since we married have had porches (ok, one was little more than a stoop, but it was covered!). Call me silly or whatever, but I can't wait to have a front porch like this! I can just imagine it festooned with garlands and lights at Christmas, bunting for the Fourth of July, and creepy crawlies at Halloween. This house is "in town" so I long to sit out on the porch to watch the passers-by and hopefully meet some new neighbors.
Dear Hubs is excited, too. Here's a composite he put together of the current house with the old porch:
Ok, I'll admit that it looks a little weird. But it helps to imagine what can be (and hopefully will be soon).
Only another month until we make the move! I'd better start packing!
Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Met Monday. And, thank you for stopping by!
